If you truly want to make a change, most of the time you have to get right into the situation. That is exactly what Service Over Self does in Memphis’ Binghampton community.
SOS is a leading piece of Memphis’ Christian Community Development strategy as they help repair homes and lives in the heart of our city.
- live incarnationally in community in an urban poor neighborhood
- grow spiritually as they are discipled and trained by SOS staff and community leaders
- have their perspectives broadened as they are exposed to others living out the gospel in the urban context and through an international mission trip
- gain practical, real-life experience working among the urban poor by partnering with organizations working in the inner city.
The SOS Academy runs from August 27, 2016 – July 31, 2017. Deadline to apply for next year is June 15, 2016.
