Show God’s love in a really BIG way with Group Mission Trips!
Here’s your chance to transform an entire neighborhood!
Bloomington/Normal is located in the heart of central Illinois—approximately 125 miles southwest of Chicago. It’s a vibrant community, home to four colleges, State Farm Insurance, and a fantastic parks system. But some parts of the city—and the people who live there—have been left behind.
You’ll be working with a local organization to transform an entire neighborhood, one home at a time. Most of the work here will be concentrated in one neighborhood—what an opportunity to show and experience the awesome power of God’s love!
Serve real people in need while working on projects like building wheelchair ramps and handrails, fixing leaky roofs, weatherizing homes and trailers, reconstructing sagging porches, significant painting projects Interior and exterior carpentry, and other home repair projects that the homeowner cannot otherwise complete.

What We Will Do
Neighborhoods are made up of people—people like Sherman.
He never had a high-paying job, but like so many other hard-working people he got up every day and gave the factory where he worked 110%. It took him years to save up enough for a down payment on his modest home, but he stuck to it and with his wife raised a family.
Today he’s retired—and the arthritis in his hips is slowly stealing his mobility. It’s not fair, after working so hard all his life.Yesterday he told his neighbor he thinks God has turned His back on him…
Could your group show him the opposite is true? Learn more about all Group Mission Trips experiences today.
