The Mission in Milwuakee

Existing in the city is an undeniable sense of potential as well as an undeniable need for the love and hope of Christ. That is where the local church in Milwaukee, as well as many nonprofit organizations and ministries have stepped in. Joining with Next Step, we feel privileged to be invited into this opportunity as well.

In 2011, Next Step began their partnership in this community and our involvement continues to grow. They are honored to work alongside groups like Bridge Builders and The Woodlands on initiatives already set by their leadership teams set on meeting community needs through light home repair and relational outreach.

During your time in Milwaukee, you may have the opportunity to work on beautification and landscaping projects at a school, or doing home repair at a family’s house. But at the end of the week you can know that your understanding of the city, as well as growth in and understanding of prayer will have taken place. Relationships will have formed. Projects will have been completed. And the love of Christ will be made known.
