Hello, Summer 2016!


The BOUNCE staff is excited to welcome this summer’s students! We are eager to meet the churches serving in Dallas this week: FBC Dimmit, FBC Crockett, FBC Plano, Kingwood FBC, Southwest Park Baptist Church, Stoneburg Baptist Church, and Wylie Baptist Church. There will be approximately 175 students and student leaders lodging at Duncanville’s First Baptist Church.

Team BOUNCE (Coordinators and Collegiate Staff) is looking forward to meeting the students and their leaders. This summer, the Collegiate Staff consists of Amy Valenta (Mission Administration Specialist), Colt Benedict (A/V Tech), Haley Edgar (Worship Leader), and Kasey Chinn (Communication & Mission Specialist). For the Dallas mission, our coordinators are Brian Pearce (Mission Coordinator), Russell Hill (Construction Coordinator), and Ryan Jerspersen (Local Logistics Coordinator). We are so thankful for each of the people who are taking time to help students serve Christ this week! It will be a pleasure to watch how God will use each group during their time here. 

This summer, the BOUNCE staff will travel to four different cities in Texas and Oklahoma to participate in community rehabilitation projects. It is our prayer that God will ignite a heart for mission service in the students who serve this summer. We want people to encounter Christ in their worship, and reflect Christ in their actions. This week in Dallas is just the beginning!
