Church Arrivals

by Kasey Chinn on July 18, 2016 in BOUNCE

BOUNCE Mission Waco is officially underway! Our churches have arrived safe and sound from various cities. The staff was glad to meet them and begin the week. We are excited to welcome and serve the 150 participants and leaders.

The week always kicks off with BOUNCE Bash: a fun, high-energy time of playing Giant Jenga, getting to know the staff, and learning about the rules of BOUNCE in an entertaining way. This is facilitated by our Worship Leader, Haley, who engages the students and gets them excited about BOUNCE. These participants are ready to help members of the Waco community. 

Each team appoints students to be Hydration Specialist, Team Chaplain, Team Doc, and Evangelism Reporter. These positions were trained today by our staff and help students in their leadership roles throughout the week. 

Every evening, we participate in a BOUNCE worship service with music, Missions Moments, and a speaker. Today, we talked about the Missions Offering which will benefit Texas Baptists Disaster Recovery. This organization helps mobilize people to assist with recovery efforts all over the state. The BOUNCE Missions Offering enables students to participate in missions by giving to support efforts in other locations. 

Can’t wait for the week to get started! Team BOUNCE is looking forward to watching God move in awesome ways. 

Texas Baptists is a movement of God’s people to share Christ and show love by strengthening churches and ministers, engaging culture and connecting the nations to Jesus.

The ministry of the convention is made possible by giving through the Texas Baptists Cooperative Program, Mary Hill Davis Offering® for Texas Missions, Texas Baptists Worldwide and Texas Baptist Missions Foundation. Thank you for your faithful and generous support.
