Cleveland, GA(March 28, 2011) –During spring break in early March 2011, a group of Truett-McConnell College students and

staff volunteers traveled to Atlanta, GA, to serve in local ministries. Group members served with different organizations including SafeHouse Outreach, Atlanta Dream Center, Women’s Refugee Sewing Society, and World Relief.

“Having the opportunity to serve in Atlanta over spring break was amazing. I didn’t realize that we have such a huge mission field in our own backyard. Through working with the homeless, refugees, inner city kids, and a Muslim family, my eyes were opened to the many needs of my neighbors as well as those across the world,” said TMC student Brooke Toon.

SafeHouse Outreach (SHO) gave the group an opportunity to encourage and pray with the 200 to 250 men and women that the organization serves daily. As well as ministering to the crowd, TMC students led worship during the evening service. 

TMC student Ben Ivey was positively affected by this particular ministry: “The people of SafeHouse have unspeakable joy—an infectious joy that leaves a massive impression on you. They are truly for God, for people, for the city, and for the world,” he said.

In addition to SHO, students and staff worked with the Atlanta Dream Center’s Adopt-A-Block. The group visited an apartment complex near Central Park to serve food and pray with the residents. Because of the increased violence in the area, the children in the neighborhood are not able to play outside, so it was an exciting day when TMC students took them to the park to play and share God’s love. 

The students and staff were given other opportunities such as hosting a block party at an upper- income international apartment complex in Duluth. About 100 people showed up for a time of games, dinner, and face painting.

Not stopping there, the crew ended the week with the Women’s Refugee Sewing Society and with World Relief in Clarkston. There, they had the privilege of ministering to refugees and their families as well as attending a French-speaking African church on Sunday morning.

Truett-McConnell College is blessed to have students and staff who are willing to uplift and enrich those who are hurting around them by serving in ministry opportunities in the nearby Atlanta area.

Truett-McConnell College equips students to fulfill the Great Commission by fostering a Christian world view through a Biblically-centered liberal arts education. For more information about Truett-McConnell College, visit www.truett.edu
