Join us for our first every trip to Athens, Greece as we partner with Streetlights in their ministry to refugee families. Streetlights is a ministry to the children, youth, and community of Kypseli, Greece. Kypseli is one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in Europe. Since 2016, it has also seen an influx of refugee families from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and elsewhere.
In the past few years, through a grant from Campus Crusade for Christ, Streetlight moved into their current location—a former bank that closed due to the economic collapse. The bank houses all of their outreach activities including a feeding program, drop-in center, music studio, creative design studios, and more. The space is constantly changing because of their emphasis on creative thinking and living. Our team will engage with youth and families in the community through day camps, sports, arts and music and feeding programs. This team will also have the opportunity to take a day trip to Corinth to experience and learn more about Biblical history.
Space on this trip is limited and our summer trips fill up fast. Sign up now!
Focused – this trip travels to one city and visits one specific ministry and has less in-country travel than some. This allows the team to build strong relationships with those they visit.
Individuals, and groups who are able to handle long travel times, walking, rides on bumpy roads, long days and the difficulties involved in seeing impoverished and difficult conditions. If you are pregnant or think you might be during this trip, please check with your doctor before planning to travel. Teachers, counselors and therapists are always welcome and encouraged to go on this trip but no skill level is required – just a heart for hurting kids.

Team Member Commitment
I understand that the mission trip starts the day I apply for the trip and agree that, as a part of a Go Be Love mission team, I am committing to being available for conference calls leading up to the trip and reading all emails and materials pertaining to the trip, and responding when necessary. I understand that these communications are needed to maximize the effectiveness of my team on the mission field, to prepare each person for the trip and to build team unity. For some teams, this may include 4 to 8 conference calls leading up to the trip. I understand that a large part of these conference calls will focus on a spiritual preparation and will include doing a pre-trip discipleship study together.
