Trinity Baptist College Hosts JESUS to JAX

Local TV and Newspapers Covered the Teens’ Service and Work for the Homeless

As part of Jesus to Jax, over 100 teenagers volunteered to assemble new beds at the Trinity Rescue Mission Women and Children’s Center. These beds are part of a $100,000 renovation project the Trinity Rescue Mission is implementing.



"I love helping people and it is just fun to see how happy they are when they see us helping them," said volunteer Erica Singletary.

The new beds are all part of a plan to fight bed bugs, a problem which often plagues homeless shelters. So with some good old-fashioned helping hands, these young people from four different churches made lives better for those who need help the most.

Due to their hard work, 65 people will have a brand new bed to lay down in tonight.



"We're very blessed and we don't want to be spoiled, so we want to help all the people who really need other people's help," volunteer Shiray Thomas said.

The missions group also participated in large scale food distribution with the Trinity Rescue Mission, Second Harvest Food Bank and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The entire urban missions trip was organized and promoted by Trinity Baptist College Trustee and Alumni Greg and Denise Peters.

Jesus To Jax is part of an expanding series of events Trinity Baptist College is hosting to connect with students before their senior year in high school. The events demonstrate the education, career and ministry options available by attending Trinity. Other events include: summer sports camps, Student Summit, Christian concerts, and the annual FACCS competition.
