Jesus said in Acts 1:8, “Be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Hebrews 13:16 compels us, “Do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”

Reach is doing its best to respond to God’s call by reaching and serving those in need. We continually strive to provide a mission trip environment filled with an uncompromising devotion to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the highest consistent quality of organization, and programming that stirs our workcampers to actively seek a closer walk with Jesus. In our best efforts, Reach Workcamps can not begin to exhaust the needs in our country.

What a glorious day it would be to run out of work and have all poverty stricken homes repaired. Unfortunately, finding needy homes is the easiest part of our job. There are other organizations that share our desire to serve Jesus in a manner similar to Reach Workcamps. If we cannot provide a workcamp in which your group can participate, please give one of the following organizations an opportunity to serve you. Reach is far more about service, than we are about promoting ourselves. We are not in competition with these organizations as we are simply fellow team members responding to God’s call on our lives. We all have our unique characteristics and niches, so please keep the following in mind when deciding: overall cost, types of worksite projects, food and lodging, overhead expenses, and programming.

If you would like to have your organization listed, please give us a call. Also, please note that Reach Workcamps is not endorsing any of the organizations listed below, rather we are simply providing an easy place for you to gain more information.

May the Lord guide you in your search.
