Every summer, a short-term missions team made up of students from the Presbytery of the Midwest gathers for the “Venture Mission” project, held on the Menominee and Stockbridge Indian Reservations in Zoar, Wisconsin (sponsored by two OP churches located there). The team is first trained, and then prepares, promotes, and presents a Vacation Bible School (VBS) on each reservation – all in the course of one week! Much relies on the maturity and initiative of the team members, many of whom have served year after year and have grown both in their commitment to missions and their love for the children they meet.
Here are testimonials from a few of this year’s team members:
