Casey Stringer, a Bible and ministry major, has been leading a group of 20 students on a spring break mission trip to Atlanta, Georgia, for the second year. Originally from Atlanta, Stringer interned at an organization called Corners Outreach in 2014.
“Corners Outreach works in a mobile home park with inner-city Hispanic families,” he said. “I was in charge of leading a daily camp for kids in the village. What Corners Outreach does as a whole is use education as a means to empower youth and get them out of their situations and as a way to share Christ. My specific role was to work with the camp counselors, which were 6th-12th graders.”
The group has been working with Corners Outreach throughout the week on a variety of projects around the organization’s building and supporting church, building relationships with children and parents of the community.
“Particularly with this community, they are marginalized, forgotten, unloved and cast aside.” he said. “This organization has gone in and said, ‘That’s not how God sees you, and we’re going to love you.’”
