Ministry info

Inner City Impact (ICI) works with children and teens in urban neighborhoods where the challenges of daily life severely affect their ability to pursue healthy and happy childhoods. ICI develops programs where kids can feel safe, be engaged in wholesome activities, build healthy relationships, expand their self-worth, and develop the life skills they need to move confidently toward a better future.

What teams will do

In the Spring, teams will help with after-school programs where the youth have a safe space to hang out, engage in constructive activities, and learn about God. ICI also runs a sports league in their gym for the local kids. In the Summer, teams will help run day camp programs. These programs involve activities such as games, crafts, sports, Bible lessons, etc. In the evenings, teams will assist the youth club program.


Teams will stay at the ministry center with access to a full kitchen. Teams will prepare their own meals at the center. There are several common areas in which boys and girls can stay in separate rooms.

How do trips work at Touch the World?

In order to set up a short-term mission trip to any of our host locations, we require your team's participation in our 3-Day Missions Training Retreat.

Touch the World is a youth-focused missions organization specializing in training for short-term teams. We equip youth with an understanding of identity, culture, and mission that prepares them to live as sent disciples of Jesus in their everyday lives.

If your group is interested in training and trips, we'd love to connect with you! If you'd like to serve with one of our ministry partners, we'll help you decide which host location is the best fit for your group. To get started, submit an interest form!
