Serbia 2024


A missions trip for high school students

This summer from June 20 to July 1, students from Parkside Church Westside's high school ministry will travel to Serbia. We will partner with a missions organization called Josiah Venture, as well as the students of a local evangelical Serbian church, in order to host a week-long, English-language camp for unbelieving youth in the community. Most importantly, we will share the Gospel with camp participants, in a country where it is estimated that less than 1% of young people know the Lord Jesus.

Thank you to all who have given to make this trip possible! We hope you will continue to support us by your prayers. Our team of 10 students and 3 adult leaders is fully funded, but if you would still like to give, we welcome your participation. If we receive donations beyond the fundraising goal, Parkside Westside's contribution toward the trip will scale accordingly so its funds remain in missions reserve (and any gifts made here will go toward the Serbia trip).

Gifts for this trip are tax-deductible, and all gifts will go toward the full team cost, rather than a particular participant. If you would like to give, please use the link below and you will be directed to a form where you can submit your gift.

Progress toward team goal of $37,050*

  Fully Funded!
