"We want every church to develop young Christian leaders through authentic ministry experience."
-Brian Hughes, President
Mission Differently (mission trips, training, and internships) and Base Sports (week-long sports camps and weekly clubs) offer churches and individuals ministry opportunities and training that develop young Christian leaders.
Valley Bible Church is a small congregation in Vista, CA, with a heart for their community. Like many churches, however, they lack the facility and volunteers to host a major outreach. They reached out to YMI for help with an ambitious project: running a sports camp at a local school.
