MISSION ON THE MON is a youth-focused, week-long Christian neighborhood immersion experience in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. Each day is filled with mission projects at a variety of locations and skill levels so that all can participate. The week is interspersed with worship, exploration of faith, and plenty of fun (including evenings in Pittsburgh and at Kennywood Amusement Park). 

McKeesport is a former industrial town in the Monongahela (Mon) Valley, a few miles southeast of Pittsburgh. Youth will be lodged at Faith Lutheran Church in the nearby bedroom community of White Oak. A ministry of Faith Lutheran Church in White Oak and the Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod of the ELCA, Mission on the Mon also partners with many local ministries, agencies, as well as local government. 

All youth going into grade 9 through having completed grade 12 in Fall 2013 are invited to register. The cost is $150 per person, due June 10, and covers meals, transportation, etc. The only other necessary cost to you is getting here! Early Bird Registration, due April 15, is $135. Some financial aid will be available.
