Success Stories: College Avenue UMC youth make game day a mission


The youth group at College Avenue United Methodist Church in Manhattan, Kansas, have shown that location truly is a key ingredient to success. Making that location work for you, though, takes planning and effort.

The youth at College Avenue sell season parking spaces in their church parking lot, which is located just across the street from the Kansas State University football stadium. The money raised goes toward an annual mission trip to ensure anyone who wants to go can participate. Then, the students use the remaining funds to issue grants to nonprofit agencies in their community, showing our youth not only can help in missions but can lead the way toward helping their church meet the needs of our neighbors.

Great Plains Conference Media Producer Eugenio Hernandez continues our "Success Stories" feature with a mini-documentary about the kids at College Avenue United Methodist Church.
