Friday Go Teams

Do you have a burden for lost people? Do you want to be part of a team that is sharing the Gospel in our neighborhoods? If there is anything that is evident in our nation today, it is that we need the transforming power of Jesus Christ. How will people know of the transformative power of Jesus if we don’t share the good news with them? Join us every Friday as we head out to engage our community by listening to people’s stories and sharing the hope that we have in Jesus.
You don’t need to be an expert evangelist to join this team, all experience levels and comfort levels are welcome. Every team will have experienced evangelists on them, you are welcome to join as:

  1. A prayer partner, paired with an evangelist, observing how to engage and converse with non-believers and interjecting when you feel comfortable.
  2. A prayer worrier, praying during the outreach for those who are heading out.
  3. An evangelist, someone comfortable in seeking to start conversations, build redemptive bridges, and lovingly and appropriately share the Gospel.

Be a part of what God is doing in our city!

Kids' Clubs and Camps

Serve at one of our several clubs and camps that reach across cultural borders to share the Gospel.

Royal Family Kids Camp

The primary purpose of Royal Family KIDS Camp is to give children, ages 6-12, who are in foster care, a week of positive memories and royal treatment in a Christian camp environment. Each child that attends Royal Family KIDS Camp will receive attention and encouragement from an adult camp counselor (i.e., his/her “buddy camper”). In addition, each camper is also exposed to a variety of fun activities where they learn more about their Heavenly Father and His love and care for them. For most of these children, it’s the best week of the year – a special time when they can focus on having fun and enjoy being a kid.

Team member opportunities include:

  • 1:1 Camp Counselor
  • Support Staff
  • Craft Leader
  • Licensed Nurse
  • Licensed Social Worker

Akina Camps

Join us in hosting a fun camp for kids, 5-12 years old, from the United Tribes of Little Earth! These kids have earned a trip to camp through regular attendance at our weekly Kids Club, and are always excited to go! There are many ways to serve in these summer retreats, including cooking, games, music, worship, crafts, or just building a relationship with a camper.

Akina Kids' Clubs

Each week during the school year, we hold a fun Akina Kids Club for the children of Little Earth of United Tribes in Minneapolis! The children come to Akina Community Church and eat supper, play games, and have Bible lessons.

There are many opportunities to serve, including: small group leader, food helper, crafts/games leader, 1:1 helper for children with special needs. Anyone ages 14 years or older is welcome to serve, and younger children can join if accompanied by a parent. If you’re interested in joining our team, please complete this application.

Stop The Trafficking

There are over 20 million slaves today — more than any other point in history. Modern-day slavery or human trafficking is the selling of a human being by means of force, fraud, or coercion to be used for labor or sex. No country is immune, including our state and our own communities. The average age of entry for sex trafficking victims in the United States is 12–14 years old.

We have the opportunity to engage with our community to make a difference – through prayer, awareness events, and reaching out to survivors of sex trafficking. Consider joining us in one or more of these initiatives!

Prayer

Our text-based prayer group is a community-wide effort in partnership with area churches to support local police on the front lines in the fight to end sex trafficking. We have connections with Christian police officers in Eden Prairie and the larger metro-area who update us as prayer needs arise. These requests are focused on operations to target buyers, those trying to purchase a minor for sex or victims who have been identified but are not yet recovered. We ask all those who receive the text stop and pray for it in the moment and throughout the week. To join, simply text the keyword JOINSTT to 43506. Download more information.

Outreach

We have the opportunity to reach out to those currently involved the life of exploitation as well as helping survivors of sex trafficking. Through partnerships with local organizations, we assist with practical needs, partner through Big Serve events, host retreats, assemble and provide Blessing Bags, and more. For more info, email Christine Erickson.

5K Event

We begin planning our annual June 5K event in the fall, and there are many opportunities to help with sponsorships, promotions, and race-day preparations. And of course, we’d love to have you join us on race day. For more info, visit stopthetrafficking.org or email Christine Erickson. All proceeds support anti-trafficking organizations with an emphasis on supporting the restoration of sexually-exploited youth.
