Cookson Hills Fall Jamboree

Opportunity Overview

All trip participants must be an active Southeast member or attendee for at least 6 months with verifiable attendance/participation. 

Overview

A group from Southeast will be partnering with Cookson Hills, a ranch-like residential facility for at-risk children and teens. Our team will help host and take part in a Fall Jamboree. 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 and women who have a desire to serve, encourage and help build confidence in students who have had a difficult life.

Objectives

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

Considerations

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.
