Phil Hoy - Mission Year 2016-17 - Chicago
Like most missions-based programs, Mission Year participants must raise living expenses for their time serving with Mission Year. We support team members as they raise funds throughout their time with us, as opposed to before they begin their year so that people from all economic backgrounds can participate. However, the more team members raise before they begin, the more time and energy they can devote to serving their community during the year. Your early donation to Phil supports him financially, spiritually, and emotionally and helps him, in advance, to be a better neighbor.
Hometown: Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland
Why I Chose Mission Year: Because the essence of Jesus' message was and is to love God and love others and Mission Year gives me the opportunity to do this for a whole year.
