Reach The Nations Atlanta
A few paces down the street in Atlanta will tell you that you do not have to cross an ocean to reach the world. Reach The Nations (RTN) is a joint effort of the Stone Mountain Baptist Association and other NAMB sponsored missionaries to reach the nations as they come. Working primarily in Stone Mountain and Clarkston, just a stone's throw from downtown Atlanta, Reach The Nations is engaging people from all over the world.
Clarkston, Georgia is home to over 120 nationalities with more than 52 language groups. A mega resettlement location for refugees, North Indian Creek Drive, separating Stone Mountain and Clarkston, is the most ethnically diverse square mile in the United States. Come join us as we reach the nations! Find our more on our website: www.rtnatlanta.com.
Mission 24 is a 24 hour mission trip experience that is a part of the RTN effort to reach all nations. This missions experience is unique in that it helps to financially aid one or two refugees per team.
Like many Americans at the current time, jobs are often hard to come by for the refugee community. Unfortunately many refugees struggle to find work because of language, cultural, and transportation barriers. For every team that participates in Mission 24, RTN will pay two refugees for helping prepare and serve food for two meals. Not only will you be able to feed the community spiritually through Mission 24, you will feed some families physically.
Who Can Come? Mission 24 is for teams of all ages that desire to come for one overnight trip. It is primarily for local churches, but is open for all. It is limited to teams of 15-30 people.
What is the Schedule? Teams arrive on Friday night and go to an apartment complex for Friday evening ministry. The team will have a cookout with hotdogs (see costs) and make contacts with residents. Upon returning, teams will debrief. On Saturday morning, breakfast will be provided and the teams will engage in prayer walking at the same apartment community and visiting families met the night before. Lunch is provided at noon. After lunch and preparation, teams will conduct a Backyard Bible Club in the apartment complex. When the Club is concluded, the team returns home.
What is the Cost? The cost is $25 and a pack of hot dogs per person. This will cover the overnight stay at a church, breakfast and lunch on Saturday, and the financial aiding of two refugee volunteers. T-shirts are an additional $5.
