Kansas, OK

All trip participants must be an active Southeast member or attendee for at least six months with verifiable attendance and participation. For questions regarding Southeast mission trips, please click the link below to the Q & A. 

A group from Southeast will be serving vulnerable children who live in on site residences with foster families at Cookson Hills Christian Ministries. 

“Imagine being ten and never knowing where your parents are. When they finally come home, you wish they would leave because it only reminds you that the drugs took them away years before. You’re taking care of yourself and your two younger siblings. You’re constantly homeless, never knowing where you're going to be when the sun rises. No child should have to go through those things. Unfortunately, that was my life.”
- Sidney, Class of 2022

Located on 1000 acres at the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, our team will help host and take part in a Fall Jamboree as well as immerse into their community through other activities. This event serves as a strengthening and bonding experience for the Cookson families and is a great way to love and build confidence in each student through teamwork and healthy competition. This is a great opportunity for men, women, and families with older youth to build friendships and encourage the students and the staff who have been isolated during COVID and look forward to the refreshment and enrichment the Jamboree brings.

Serve Cookson Hills by:
  • Providing a fun, exciting and encouraging event
  • Providing an opportunity for the staff and students to bond
  • Developing healthy relationships with students with the purpose of sharing Christ in a fresh new way
Please remember the students of Cookson Hills have come from troubled backgrounds.  All team members will be required to complete a background assessment and online Ministry Safe Training prior to leaving for this trip. For more information, feel free to contact:
