Reflecting Christ

BOUNCE is a pre-packaged mission experience that provides student ministries the opportunity to impact affected areas by being the hands and feet of Christ. This new student ministry platform offers students the opportunity to assist communities in their efforts to BOUNCE back from devastation after disaster has struck. In addition to disaster recovery projects, a BOUNCE mission features times of worship and reflection designed to help participants encounter and respond to God.
