Atlanta Summer Mission

Storyrunners Summer Mission

Join StoryRunners® for a unique and life-changing summer mission where you will connect with people the way Jesus did: storytelling! Each day our team will engage with God as we explore His Word through oral Bible stories. You’ll be equipped to use oral Bible storytelling as a tool to reach people for Christ. As you learn these stories this summer, you will have the opportunity to share them as you build relationships with people from around the world. In addition, you will experience all of the incredible components of any Cru summer mission: Christ-centered community with fellow college students, incredible personal development and abounding spiritual growth.

Our summer mission team will be working alongside local churches and ministries who are serving the refugees within Clarkston, GA.  In the small 2-mile-square city of Clarkston, there are currently 18,000 refugees, representing 180 people groups, and 96 of those are unreached/unengaged people groups. God has brought the nations here. Without leaving the United States, you can be part of reaching the nations for Christ!

These stories change lives. Will you invest your time and talents to learn a new skill and help reach the unreached?

Most nights we will camp at 8,500 feet at the beautiful Glacier Basin Campground in Rocky Mountain National Park.

During your stay, you will share accommodations with 3-4 people of the same gender. While at the Rocky Mountain National Park, we will sleep in tents. While camping, you will have access to campground restrooms, and solar-heated showers are available for your use.

Temperatures in July often reach the 70s or 80s and drop to the upper 40s at night. 

You’ll definitely need to pack a sleeping bag, sleeping pad, good hiking shoes and a flashlight; we provide the rest of the camping gear. Upon acceptance, you will receive a detailed packing list.

Expect many miles of hiking at high elevation (8,500 – 12,000 feet). You need to be in good health and able to handle strenuous physical activity because you will be hiking for several hours each day. We suggest that you prepare for the trip by exercising more (cardio, weights, interval training, etc.) between now and July. If you have questions or concerns about your physical health, consult with your doctor. Certain physical conditions may require a doctor’s approval before acceptance.
