May 2017 – Michigan State University UKirk with AMEN St. Louis
Students from MSU’s UKirk campus ministry served with community mission projects, coordinated by AMEN|St. Louis. Their mission opportunities, which included work with Church in the Streets and Gateway Greening, paved the way for the students to learn more about the causes of poverty and homelessness, and how they intersect with local social justice issues, such as institutional racism. The students gathered each morning for devotional and each evening to unpack and reflect on their day of service.
