A series of one-day events across the nation where neighborhoods are transformed by Christian youth groups eager to help people in need.

Introduce your students to missions

Want your kids to be part of something amazing - something bigger than themselves? They can!… Introducing The Big Day of Serving…a series of one-day events across the nation where neighborhoods are transformed by a swarm of Christian kids eager to help people in need. At The Big Day of Serving, your group will transform a neighborhood in a single day...

  • They'll clean city blocks, alleyways and parks
  • Help with landscaping & plant community gardens
  • Remove graffiti
  • Paint and tackle minor home repairs

The best part? The Big Day events are local (within minutes or hours from where you live), easy (you simply show up and serve) and affordable (for the cost of $29 per person with super early bird registration, your group has access to an all-inclusive service experience!)

On a practical level, The Big Day can be seen as an introduction to missions. If you're new to youth ministry, the event can be the stepping stone you're looking for. Or, if you're a youth mission trip veteran, consider getting involved with The Big Day. It'll re-energize  your kids and continue to help them develop a servant's heart. And, it's a great way to start preparing for your upcoming summer mission trip.

The Big Day is not just a day of service; it's a national movement. The goal: one million kids all over the country working together for the same cause. Imagine city after city and block after block, these changes will multiply and change not only local neighborhoods...but entire cities all across America!

Do you want your youth to be a part of a cause so great and so worthy of their time? We hope the answer is "YES!" Please join us.
