Mission Trip 2014: Wrap-UpPosted: August 12th, 2014, 11:41 am
Do Justice. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly.
Last fall, Blake Miller suggested that we consider partnering with Church for the Highlands in Shreveport for our 2014 mission trip. After only one conversation with the pastor, John Henson, and youth minister, Kyle Kelley, it was clear that this would be a meaningful partnership.

Indeed, their entire ministry is a missional outreach in one of Shreveport’s poorest communities.
John and Kyle described for us the work that they and other CBF churches in Louisiana had been doing for several years in the community of Lake Providence, Louisiana.
