With oversight from our high school faculty, SMF elects officers and organizes teams of students who lead the school in our annual Mission Week and other outreach opportunities.
Locally, Student Mission Fellowship supports Operation Christmas Child, collects athletic shoes for the Hoops for Hope initiative for Access 2 Success and partners with Caterpillar Ministries. SMF leads the school's efforts to serve Huntersville's Caterpillar Ministries in the following ways:
- Toy Drive for Caterpillar Christmas Store
- Coordinating Happy Birthday Jesus Gift Bags
- Giving Tree Fundraiser
- Food drive
In the past, the SMF has assisted in raising $45,000 for a new van for the orphanage our senior class visits in the mountains of Peru. This van enabled the orphanage to transport their high school students to school and to apprenticeship opportunities in the nearby village of Yungay, Peru.
SMF also led a program to purchase tents for Christian refugees in northern Iraq. Students were educated on the suffering and persecution of these Christians and spent their time in prayer and raising money to purchase tents for relief. With thanks to God, a check for $11,439 was sent to Barnabas Aid for the provision of shelter in northern Iraq. Students were given the opportunity to have real solidarity with Sawra (Arabic for “hope”), as they camped out in tents on campus in the 45 degree rain.
