Missions work is one of the most rewarding experiences in the life of a Christian. Jesus commands us in The Great Commandment to Go into all the world and make disciples.
Matthew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Whether your seeking a place to minister as an individual, family or in a team. Such as a youth group, church-wide family group or humanitarian aid group, Camp Agape is designed to host and provide opportunities for missions work.
Missions Teams usually participate in community based ministry. Youth groups need at least 1 adult per 6 youth members. If you have a mixed group (male and female), we also require that you bring both male and female leaders. The cost is approximately $42 per day per person and includes lodging, meals, T-shirt, orientation, some materials, and on-site supervision.
Ministries opportunities include such things as:

DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT-- The swimming area of the lake has a depth of zero to 4 feet and an area of about 30 square yards. The bottom has a rubber membrane covered by about 4 inches of leaves and muck. This bottom muck is providing a substrate for leeches and fingernail size clams. The shore is a grass zone about 6 feet from the water to a rock wall. This grassy zone extends along the shore about 30 yards. The rock wall is about 2 feet tall. Above the wall is a grass covered lane that will support vehicle traffic. The challenge is to use a trash pump to remove the muck from the lake bottom and haul away the waste. The grassy shoreline needs to be scraped with a tractor mounted blade and washed sand added to provide a sandy shoreline.Bradley Rentals in Cleveland, Tn., has a three inch “trash” pump which rents for about $95.00 per day including taxes. This pump is equipped with a 20 foot suction hose and a 50 foot discharge hose. The pump can be mounted in a boat or on a floating platform. The suction hose can be used to suck the muck off the bottom and discharge it into a liquid holding container on a truck. The waste can then be dumped at some remote location.Estimated time: Three days to complete cleaning the lake bottom. Scraping the grassy area and adding sand will probably take an additional two days. This project should be done before the camp opens on May 1st.Items needed: Trash pump; truck or trailer with liquid holding tank; boat or floating platform; floats for discharge hose; tractor with box blade or front-end loader; Approximately 40 cubic yards of washed sand.
