I Heart Fresno 2020

Posted January 22 WSM

Well Student Ministries presents ... I Heart Fresno 2020. Students will experience God's heartbeat in the city of Fresno by partnering with existing ministries throughout the city to be the hands and feet of Jesus. We will serve children living in close proximity to these ministry sites by organizing and presenting a short morning VBS program and spend the afternoon working along side these local leaders to improve the environment. As a local Exposure Trip, I Heart Fresno is not meant to be an end in itself, but meant to move students to action. Whether this leads to future international Exposure Trips or an everyday adjustment of lifestyles and values, we believe they will never be the same.

The Fig Garden Campus will serve as basecamp for the duration of the trip. Expect live worship, amazing speakers, games, and fun throughout the evenings! All transportation and meals will be provided.

Mandatory Training

In the past, I Heart Fresno has been an event but not necessarily an exposure trip in the way that The Well does exposure trips. This year we have reevaluated the whole process and believe that it would be most beneficial to students, their experience, and their faith, to make I Heart Fresno a true “mini” exposure trip. Every exposure trip that The Well does has training beforehand to prepare the participants. We believe that we are not doing justice to the people that students are serving or the student’s ability to serve, without properly training them. For this reason, we will be closing registration early Monday, March 23rdat 5pm so that the following Saturday, we can do a mandatory training on Saturday, March 28thfrom 10-12pm for our leaders and students so they are fully prepared for everything that God has for them during their I Heart Fresno experience.

Registration: opens monday, February 17th. limited spots available
Parent involvement:

We would love for parents to be involved throughout the week in multiple ways. Either hospitality team helping prepare dinners, being present at the work sites, or even staying overnight! If you would like to help with that, please click here to tell us your availability.
