"Mission is more than just a service project, volunteer hours, or a trip to a foreign country. Mission can be praying with a friend who's upset, writing about your faith on a blog, or doing extra chores for your dad."
- From the Foreword
About this Book:
Pope Francis has called for an increase in mission - what does that mean for teens? The teens who share their stories all encountered God in a profound, real way. They found sacrifice, service, and joy - and met God in the people that they worked with and served. Through real stories of real missions, Teens Share the Mission leads teens to a deeper sense of what mission is all about.
The book especially points out ways to serve without traveling. As Britt Leigh points out in the foreword, serving those you know at home is just as valuable - and sometimes more awakening - than serving strangers that they won't see again after a week.
Teens Share the Mission is the perfect gift for teens who are trying to figure out why service hours are required, or who are nervous about approaching a new mission trip. A great tool for youth ministry, World Youth Day catechesis, and religious education.

What Are People Saying about this Title?
"These teens have found a gift in service, one they give freely. They have found JOY: Jesus, Others, Yourself. Religion classes and youth groups will find this an invaluable resource in showing students that service hours are more than a class assignment; they are part of our mission, our calling."
