Neighbors Helping Neighbors (NHN)

Registration deposit

NHN (Neighbors Helping Neighbors) is an affordable mission experience for youth groups that are regional or small in size. The program provides a blend of home repair, worship, and overnight camp experience. Participants must be rising 7th graders or older. 

Every church who participates in NHN must meet at least ONE of these requirements: 

  • Have an average Sunday attendance of 150 people or less
  • Be located in the Mountain T.O.P. service area: Grundy Marion, Sequatchie, White, Warren or Bledsoe counties of Tennessee.

Through this service program, all participants experience various worship styles, leadership opportunities, and are encouraged to build relationships with members of the camp community as well as those within the service area. Our hope is that through meeting all of the needs of the Cumberland Mountain families, the groups will find commonalities with them and thus bridge the cultural gap – we instill the idea of working with people as opposed to for them.

 

The camp week begins on Tuesday afternoon with orientation, worship, games and fun activities. Wednesday and Thursday groups will be out in the community from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. doing either the Day Camp program (DC) or Service Project (SP). On Friday work groups will take time to celebrate their week through spending time at local businesses in the community.

 

At MTOP we want to provide a space where youth can explore their faith in quiet reflection, group discussions, and community worships. This is so youth and adults are able to connect the “what” they are doing with the “why” they are doing it. We do not want this experience to be a something to just check off the to do list, but to put the calling we each have from God into action. To encourage youth to use their gifts and talents to spread God’s love.

 

Through morning personal reflection time, devotionals on the work site, community sharing about the day, community building games and activities, and evening worships, we hope that participants are able to see the evidence of Christ’s love in the everyday activities they will do over the course of the week. In seeing that, our hope is that they carry that passion for service to their homes, schools, workplace, churches, and hometowns.

 

An NHN camp community maxes out at 135 participants that are divided into what we call Major Groups. A staff member is then responsible for coordinating projects for and leading a Major Group of 25-35 participants. Within Major Groups, volunteers are divided for the final time into what we call Youth Renewal Groups (YRGs). YRGs are created based on a mix of gender, age, church, skill and experience. We do our best to create balanced teams in order for volunteers to step out of their comfort zone, meet new people, and work together in the most efficient ways possible.
