Urban Plunge will not take place this summer. Look for its return the summer of 2019.
Urban Plunge (formerly Urban Experience) will be held in New York and Los Angeles. Mark Armbruster will lead the New York trip and Keith Keltner will lead the Los Angeles trip. Both trips are limited to 20 adults.
Mark grew up in the Goshen, Indiana, area on a dairy farm. He trusted Christ at a young age but really started taking his faith seriously once he came home from college. He has been plugged into and has helped lead The Pursuit, the young adult ministry at Grace Community Church in Goshen, for the past two years. As the recreation director at Grace Community Church, Mark enjoys using sports and our facilities at the church as tools to reach people for Christ. He leads the volunteer staff for their Open Gym ministry and also for the new indoor playground called The Park.
The dates for Los Angeles are July 28-August 4. The dates for New York are July 14-21.
The cost of the Los Angeles trip is $625.00. The cost of the New York trip is $585.00. The price includes local transportation expenses, a t-shirt, meals, housing, and training materials. Housing will be provided by various people from local area churches. Space is limited to the first 20 registered participants. A $100 deposit is due June 15 for both trips. The cost after June 15 is $50 more.
Urban Plunge will give participants a taste of evangelism in the city with hands-on ministry opportunities. This trip is a great opportunity for either a small group to experience together or for training adults within the church.
This trip is designed to help participants to live ON MISSION and engage with neglected people groups in urban settings to share the hope of the gospel and to return home excited about sharing their faith in their local community.
