Eagle Brook Church Student Mission Trip

Welcome to Big City 2020!


Big City is about following Jesus. It’s about putting our faith into action, stepping outside of our comfort zones, and relying on God’s power and provision. Big City is an opportunity to grow deeper in your faith by serving other people and focusing your time and attention on Jesus.

Throughout this journey, we will unite as one church with a single mission: to love God and love our neighbors. We will accomplish this mission by training together, eating together, worshiping together, and serving together.

Just after Jesus defeated death by rising from the dead, he appeared to his closest followers and friends and gave them a mission. He said, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.” (Mk.16:15) Big City is our chance to go and give Good News to everyone.

Let’s follow Jesus together by loving God, loving people, and giving Good News on Big City 2020!

Let’s go!

—Brandon Gilliam, High School Teaching Pastor
