Mission Indy was born out of a desire to help teens take the skills and motivations learned and developed on both the foreign and domestic mission fields and put them into action at home. The goal was to help students see the mission of God as a lifestyle rather than a trip. Since 1997, youth and adults have come to reach out to the inner city of Indianapolis and partner with existing churches and ministries in the city.
Because Mission Indy is about equipping and not simply service, more strategic training elements are included in the experience and close attention is paid to ensure all elements of the programs pointed towards equipping.
Their mission is to equip Christians to serve others by:
Training: Mission Indy seeks to provide opportunities for church groups to learn as well as practice new skills and methods of sharing life together in the context of the Kingdom of God.
Encouraging: As church groups come to serve and learn, Mission Indy's endeavor is to encourage them to be faithful in all that God has called them to be and do when they return to where God has planted them.
Challenging: While groups are serving and learning, Mission Indy's role is to challenge paradigms and thinking, so God's people might explore and discern what He is doing, and be exposed to ways they might be involved with the work of the Kingdom wherever they are.
Motivating: Church groups who spend time with Mission Indy will be motivated as they hear and see stories and examples of people who faithfully allow God to use them to display His wisdom and love.
