UNITE North was an exciting, immersive experience for high school students from all over the Northwest Conference, Canada, and beyond and was held at Bethel University in Arden Hills on July 14-17, 2022. These four days were be packed with evening sessions with dynamic speakers and worship; experiential learning experiences on and off-campus that stretched students & their faith; tournaments and events for athletes and non-athletes; small group discussion and personal reflection; amazing meals prepped by professional chefs and bakers at the Bethel cafeteria and so much more!
When the COVID pandemic started in 2020, we had plans to take a team to Ecuador that summer and as the pandemic continued, we initially felt led to postpone our visit to Mejia until either 2021 or 2022. UNITE North (see above) is happening in July 2022 so we are setting our sights on 2023 and beyond.
Funds that we had previously raised for the Ecuador 2020 trip were split into 3 equal parts, with 1/3 going directly to Mejia for relief, 1/3 going to support MERGE, and 1/3 as a cushion for when we do eventually make it down there.

2019 Summer Mission Trip
Youth Mission Trip, July 12-21, 2019
We brought 15 students safely out to the Blackfeet Nation in Montana and back in July. It was an exhausting 10 days and we returned emptied of energy but filled with a passion for God's work that we're excited to bring back to our local community. God was at work in the hearts of each of our students and it was a great experience! We were stretched outside of our comfort zones but saw some tremendous growth in the group.
We also got to experience the great vastness of our God through the mountains and scenery. A couple highlights from the trip were our day in Glacier National Park and the Big Daddy Weave concert.
