PLIA 2020

PLIA is a ministry that sends Dordt University students on mission trips over Spring Break. Each year, Dordt sends students to several different sites across the United States in order to “Put Love Into Action”. This initiative is planned, led, and executed solely by students. Each team is made up of 8-10 students from different grades, majors, and backgrounds. On site, groups work alongside ministries and organizations to support, encourage, and learn. Mission work often includes general maintenance, painting, assisting in building homes, praying for the city, evangelism, lawn care, homeless ministry, and tutoring children.

Both students and ministries benefit from the opportunities PLIA provides. Over the years, Dordt has been able to build relationships with the ministries we typically partner with. Ministries are encouraged and given a respite as students shoulder much of the work for a week. Additionally, the community gets to see young, committed Christians living out their love for Jesus. Students gain new cultural experiences, learn new skills, receive insight into how ministry and non-profits are run, and more than anything, get to pour themselves out as Jesus poured Himself out for us.

In order to sustain this student-led ministry, we need your help! Yes, we desire your prayers - we need them! We also are in need of financial support. Over 160 students served in 16 locations around the U.S. in March of 2019. While students fundraise and pay a fee to participate in PLIA, we still need additional support to meet our expenses. We would love to have you partner with us to sustain this ministry and its impact. The 2019 trip has passed, but our mission has not. We are preparing for the 2020 Spring Break Trips and would love for you to be a part of this ministry!
