Esperanza Mission Trip

Annual Esperanza Mission Trip with the College of Wooster

North Street Mission Press Release

Press Release:   North Street Mission, a new mission trip opportunity for youth or adult groups.
Background Trinity United Church of Christ of Wooster, Ohio is proud to announce the creation of a new mission trip destination on the third floor of the church building, called North Street Mission.  Three years ago, Head Start who previously utilized six church rooms, moved out of the church when it purchased a local elementary school and consolidated all of their locations.  The church reviewed the options for the open rooms and in keeping with our local, regional and global mission focus decided that we had the ability to turn the empty space into a mission destination for other groups.  The third floor was then renovated and now has four bunk rooms, a gathering room and two rest rooms with showers.
