What is John’s Island?
Beginning 22 years ago, the Youth (and later the Young Adults) of CHUMC have gone on a mission trip affectionately referred to as “Johns Island”. This island of contrasts is located south of Charleston, South Carolina. Although sections of the island boast million dollar homes and golf courses, there are plenty of people whose housing is less than optimal. These are the people we seek to help.
What is the mission?
We work under the direction of Rural Mission Inc., an interdenominational organization founded to promote and minister to the spiritual, economic, social educational, medical and housing needs of residents of the Sea Islands. Past projects have included roof replacement, insulation of walls and attics, replacing windows and doors, painting house exteriors, building porches, steps, and handicap ramps, and giving residents of the island a better place to live and hope for the future.
