This has been on the back burner for awhile now. About three years ago I was asked the question "What does your ministry need?" I immediately answered a 15 passenger van. I remember volunteering at a church in Rockford that had a van. It was sweet. We planned a trip. Everyone gathered at the church and we went. It was awesome to all be together.
Having a van for our youth ministry would give us the opportunity to pick up several kids who can't get transportation to Helix, Core or Higher grounds. If it was painted it would be a rolling advertisement for our church. Having a church van would definitely give us the opportunity to minister to those who simply can't afford to get to us.
