BOUNCE Student Disaster Recovery is a Great Option for Your Church
Who is responsible for the student ministry at your church? Whether it's a full or part-time youth minister or a group of volunteers, BOUNCE Student Disaster Recovery can help mobilize your students to be on mission. Students have a desire to make a difference in the world and BOUNCE provides them an opportunity to do just that through long-term disaster recovery and home rehabilitation projects.
Here are some reasons to consider BOUNCE for your students.
No time to plan a mission trip? No worries. BOUNCE takes care of all the details. You don't have to concern yourselves with lodging, food, ministry projects, or materials. BOUNCE handles all your logistics and frees you up to minister along-side students.
Students will serve communities through a variety of ministry projects. Work may include, but is not limited to debris removal & clean-up, construction rehabilitation, and other ministry projects that will assist and encourage members of the affected community.
Although the heart of BOUNCE is mission service, there is also an opportunity for students to encounter and respond to God through evening times of worship and reflection.
A Kingdom Approach to Service
Students and adults will meet new friends from other churches as they partner to serve communities for Christ. Your students and adults are combined with participants from other churches to form ministry teams. At least two participants from your group are placed on a team to minister with participants from other churches for the week.
Any Size Group Can Participate
Whether you want to bring three participants or 30, BOUNCE can accommodate your group and provide you with a significant hands-on mission experience.
No Construction Experience Required
Although helpful, your group doesn't need construction experience. BOUNCE has experienced construction personnel to lead and supervise ministry teams. If your church has experienced construction volunteers, let us know. We may want to enlist them to serve as a ministry team leader.
Spring Break and Summer Options
There are Spring Break “express" missions that provide your students with two days of mission service, thereby leaving you a few days for spring break rest and recreation. During the summer months BOUNCE offer five day missions.
A Value Price
The BOUNCE pre-packaged approach to missions includes lodging in an area school or church, meals, mission preparation materials, on-site supplies, supplemental insurance, mission coordinating team, staff, and worship team and a BOUNCE t-shirt. All this for $279.00 per person for summer missions. Spring Break missions are priced at $140.00.
Most students head home after BOUNCE with a greater love for missions and ministry. They leave with a desire to serve their communities and to do great things. Some will return home with a clarified call to ministry. BOUNCE knows that communities will be different as a result of the ministry we perform, however, it also excites us to know that student lives are changed as well.

BOUNCing Out of Waco and Summer 2017
by Jordan Pitman on July 21, 2017 in bounce
And that’s a wrap in Waco and for Summer 2017. We are impressed by the work that was completed by our BOUNCERS and proud of the mark they have left on this community and its residents. We want to thank Cristoval Baptist Church, Crossroads Baptist Church, and First Baptist Church Lampasas for participating and serving with us this week. Our BOUNCE staff hopes you all have safe travels back home, and that you would continue serving even after this week.
This week would not be possible without the work of our coordinators and partners in the community. We would like to thank Aaron Austin for his work as Mission Coordinator, as... [continue]
