Revolution Youth South Dakota 2017!

March 13, 2017 ***UPDATE

We are assembling a team of 25 (5 adults, 20 students) people to head to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to support the work of Restoration Church which is located in Pine Ridge, SD.  This is the ministry that Wade McHargue was part of.  We plan to leave Friday June 16th, and return Saturday June 23rd.  Approx. cost for this trip will be $400.   All food, lodging, and activities will be covered in this cost. This will not include spending money for things like souvenirs, or activities not planned.

The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is one of the poorest places in the country and has great needs. Perhaps the greatest need is to know Jesus as Lord and Savior.  Our MISSION, is to go and support, uphold and encourage the ministry team at Restoration Church, and assist them in building bridges to the community.

Some of the ways that these bridges can be built is through meeting of tangible needs.  One of the needs is the completion of Construction Projects.  Whether maintenance, roofing, siding, decks, painting, or flooring, there is a great need for upkeep in many of the houses on the Pine Ridge Reservation.  Doing these projects is a tangible way to show the love of Christ.  We may also assist the church with some projects on their campus.

In addition to construction projects, we will be doing some community outreach, door knocking, community BBQ, and maybe a Vacation Bible School.  There is a skate park and basketball court in town where many young people hang out.  We hope to hang out with them!

Our team must be solidified prior to figuring out some of the details.  Please sign up below ASAP so that we know you are committed to this team.  $50 dollar deposit is due on April 2nd.    If you have other questions, please contact Ben by text, 218-428-2220, or by email

We are excited about this trip and what God will do in us and through us!  Please strongly and prayerfully consider being part of our team!
