The small town of Joplin, Missouri was forever changed when a monstrous tornado swept through the center of the quiet southern town. The storm took the lives of 162 people, leaving thousands of others with nothing. But even in this dark moment, there was hope. The residents of Joplin came together as one, united and determined to rebuild their community.
In 2011, Next Step Ministries partnered with a number of disaster relief volunteers and organizations to assist in the rebuilding process. Many homes were completely destroyed and others were heavily damaged. The need is huge, but with your help, we can help to rebuild Joplin and help families return to their homes.
You will have the opportunity to build and repair houses, including work like roofing, siding, dry walling, framing and flooring. The work will be challenging, but our skilled construction staff is in place and ready to direct the students through the rebuilding process.
In addition to the work, you will be able to spend time with the residents and hear their powerful stories. You will get a firsthand glimpse into the tragic events of that day and the inspiring rebuilding that followed.
Join us in Joplin next summer for a life-changing mission experience. We need your hands and feet to carry out this mission and rebuild this community.
