Why Mission Trips?

At the Alley we are about “Following Jesus and Living Love”; mission trips provide us with a tangible way to do this. We are challenged with opportunities that will pull us outside our comfort zone, put us in a position to rely on God, and help us to grow in our relationship with Him and with other teens from our church and from around the country. And besides it’s FUN!


Mission trips are NOT vacations… We work hard. We pour ourselves out serving God in the communities in which we get to spend our week. We love…and are loved on…by the community members we encounter, by people on our team, by other church groups that we serve alongside, and by the YouthWorks staff. God is already at work where we go…it’s a privilege to plug in to what He is doing.

2019 Trip

In the summer of 2019, we will once again be doing a mission trip!!!  We're super excited for this year's opportunity and encourage all of our Alley Teens to consider joining us!


We will be departing from the Alley on Sunday, June 23rd and returning back on Friday, June 28th.


The location has been revealed! We are headed to Quad Cities, IL and are REALLY LOOKING FORWARD to seeing what God has in store for us there!

There may still be spots available! To find out, please contact Mark Boatman. If there are still openings, he will direct you to download this form, fill it out, and return it to him along with your $100 (non-refundable) deposit.

(If you are challenged to come up with the deposit $$$ please talk to Mark.)


IMPORTANT NOTE: We DO NOT want cost to be a detractor. We CAN work with you! If you need assistance, we do expect you to participate fully in the fundraisers. But we will find a way to make this happen for a teen even if they can’t afford the full cost. Rarely does anyone pay full price (unless they choose to). Fund raisers can make a significant dent in what you owe! Talk to Mark if you would like to learn more about getting financial assistance.


You can reach Mark via email (mboatman@theAlley.church) or voice/text (651-285-0769).
