SCA senior class gathers together before leaving for Moore, Oklahoma for senior mission trip

The senior class at Summit Christian Academy (SCA) departed from Lee’s Summit last Thursday morning for their annual senior mission trip.  The students are serving this week in Moore, Oklahoma, where they will be helping with tornado relief efforts.

“This is practice,” said Wayne Stam, who also founded and directs SPLAT, a Christian organization that focuses on challenging 13-18 year olds through mission trips.

“The point is to encourage students to be servant leaders, putting their own desires aside.  Students will be challenged to move outside of their comfort zones and experience life outside the norm.  They will learn to look for everyday opportunities to serve others.”

Stam, a member of the faculty at SCA, coordinated the senior mission trip to Oklahoma where they will spend five days working to clear debris and recover salvageable belongings of those affected by the tornado last May in Oklahoma. 

Like the SPLAT trips, this trip will not only help students work side by side in ministry, but will also establish a bond between them.   

“The students will have the opportunity to work as a team and will learn to rely on each other,” said Secondary Principal Emir A. Esparza.  “This will prove to be important as they embark upon their senior year”.

“The senior trip is really in line with our desire to spiritually equip our students for life outside of our walls,” said Esparza.  “We want students to continue to grow in confidence and know they can make a difference through service and teamwork.”
