About the Trip


Minneapolis June 23-29

I have a great opportunity to go on a mission trip to Minneapolis this summer to join Jesus in his work there. I anticipate this trip will help me grow as a disciple of Jesus and deepen my faith.

We depart Monday, June 23, for an urban immersion in what many believe to be the most diverse neighborhood in the country. We will be serving in Partnership with Source, which is an organization devoted to being a friend and voice to the at risk and unreached of the city since 1987. Source focuses on Urban Outreach, Human Trafficking, and Creative Justice.

Our efforts will focus mainly on the creative justice facets of Source’s ministry and we will have opportunity to participate in the powerful work that is happening through their many initiatives. We anticipate that our own hearts will be changed and impassioned by God in the process.

The trip is being funded entirely by donations and by our team. We are currently conducting fund-raisers to help with this effort, and every penny collected above and beyond the cost of travel, room and board for the team will be given as a gift to directly benefit Source and the people it reaches.

What I need to raise to go on this trip is $800. I am excited about the opportunity to serve, minister, and grow, and I ask you to join me in this ministry through giving. Consider giving $200, $100, or $50 as a starting point.

How to Give

Here’s how to partner with me:

  • Write a check or money order to PICC (Pawleys Island Community Church)
  • In the memo line, write “MN Mission, Raina Sternke”
  • Send the check to me at 222 Widgeon Dr, Pawleys Island, SC 29585

All contributions are tax deductible. A receipt from Pawleys Island Community Church will be sent to acknowledge your tax-deductible gift. An accounting of all funds will be available, should you desire to see it, upon our return from Minneapolis.

How to Pray

As my trip grows near, I’d really appreciate your prayers for our team and for myself:

  • That we would love people well
  • That we would have a humble attitude
  • That we would be healthy throughout the trip
  • Especially that God would change my heart to be more like His these next weeks and while in Minneapolis.

Thank you so much for supporting me through prayer! I thank you in advance for your prayers and your financial support. May God bless you richly!
