Contact: Circe Torruellas • circe.torruellas@gmail.com

Come join us after the 9am, the 10:30a, or the 12p Barracks Row services to hear about the Phoenix Mission Team!

For the fifth year, NCC will partner with StreetLightUSA, a 501(c)3 based in Phoenix, to combat sex trafficking and sexual exploitation among girls in the United States. We’ll learn from StreetLightUSA’s work and minister alongside them, supporting their programs to bring restoration for victims and increase awareness of the issue. We will work with pre-teens and teens who have been trafficked or are at risk of being trafficked. The team will organize and facilitate interactive and outdoor adventure activities (such as hikes, climbing, kayaking) for them as they discover their true identity in Christ.

Thailand Mission Team Info Session

11:30 AM • Lincoln Theater • Google Map

Contact: Amanda Baker • acbaker330@Gmail.com

Thailand and DC aren’t so different:

– both are capital cities with high numbers of international populations and tourists
– both have high numbers of human trafficking and exploitation, both labor and commercial sex
– both have an epidemic of HIV (more than 1% of the population infected)

Where do we fit in all of this? This short-term mission will have an anti-trafficking focus with two parts: 1) In Bangkok we will partner with local organizations (The Well, Dton Naam, MST Project), doing nightly outreach (simply talking with the women and men) in the various red light districts; 2) In the rural area of Issan we will continue to partner with Breakthrough Thailand and NCCer Cori Wittman in their prevention efforts and focus on prayer. Our goal for this mission is not only to engage with the issue of exploitation and trafficking in Thailand but also translate and apply what we will learn to serve our own community in DC.

Haiti Mission Team Info Session

2:00 PM • 7th Street Offices • Google Map

Contact: Reagan Chaney • reagan.chaney@theaterchurch.com

NCC is sending a team to Port-au-Prince for the sixth year in a row to partner with our friends at Redeemer’s Child Orphanage (Bisoul Timoun). We have worked with this organization on construction projects, vacation Bible school summer camps and compassion trips, spending time with orphans and their caretakers. We invite you to spend a week learning more about Haitian culture pre- and post- the life-changing 2010 earthquake and recent devastation of Hurricane Matthew.

This year we will focus on providing long-term support to the orphanage through fundraising and continued relationship building. We will also immerse ourselves in Haitian culture while we are the ground.

Nepal Mission Team Info Session

2:00 PM • 7th Street Offices • Google Map

Contact: Marty Raines • mARTYRAINES@gmail.com

Share. Support. Serve. Nepal has one of the fastest-growing Christian populations in the world. Join this team to be part of an amazing opportunity to share God’s love in unlikely places. We will be joining NCC-sponsored missionaries to take the gospel to unreached villages in Nepal. We’ll focus on supporting church and community leaders, serving children and families in rural villages, sharing stories from God’s word and distributing much-needed supplies. We’ll also get to spend some time playing, praying, and providing encouragement to the children and families we serve. If you love spreading smiles or having a good outdoor adventure, you’ll love visiting the rural Himalayan villages surrounding Kathmandu to share God’s love; support kids, families, and church leaders; and serve this growing Christian community.

DC Homeless Experience Commitment Meeting

Contact: Zac Smith • Zacmsmith@gmail.com

Come join the DC Homeless Experience Team!

Join us as we partner with National Coalition for the Homeless for the 5th year in a row. This is an opportunity to get a small glimpse into what it would be like to live on the street in DC. You will see the world through the eyes of someone experiencing homelessness and hear their stories. You will learn what the city has to offer in terms of services and what it is like to sleep outside on the street.

Your empathy will grow and your stereotypes of people experiencing homelessness will change. God’s heart breaks for the poor and suffering right in our backyard. Let’s seek to understand His heart just a little bit more.

India Mission Team Info Session

12:00 PM • Lincoln Theatre • Google Map

Contact: Rob Arthur • rarthur1985@gmail.com

Contrasting with India’s vibrant colors, aromas, and its rich cultural heritage are the dark industries of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Economic hardships and the lack of livelihood options combined with an entrenched, oppressive class system leave thousands desperate enough to become trapped in–or sometimes forced into–the vicious cycle of sex slavery.

For four years now, we have partnered with Sparsh in Pune with the focus of investing in the lives of children of current sex slaves. We will also be supporting their various initiatives that provide hope for current women in bondage as well as holistic restoration to rescued victims of trafficking and exploitation and to drug addicts. We will be working directly with local communities and with woman and children in the infamous red light districts to bring hope, joy, and love while facilitating healing.
