History of Mission Possible
Founded in 1992, Mission Possible is a mission group consisting of 25-30 members at First Presbyterian. Mission Possible’s mission is to support and improve unique Christian educational opportunities for spiritual learning and growth in a natural setting for future leaders of our community. In addition, Mission Possible provides volunteer work opportunities and fellowship for its participants.
Each year a group of dedicated volunteers make an annual trip to a Presbyterian youth summer camp for the purpose of maintenance and construction at the camp. Volunteers work 4 ½ days during the weeklong annual trip.
