Teen Mania Ministries
May 29, 2012
In the past 3 years my teen had gone to 3 Acquire the Fire events and two mission trips out of the US. She'll be going to NY this summer. I honestly have nothing but praise for Teen Mania campus/Global Expeditions/Acquire the Fire. My teen had the best time at all of these events, and the mission trips were life changing in the best way possible. Before the trip she was already a good kid, but she came back with a peace in her heart about God that she had never had. I can't thank them enough for being able to send my kid out of the country and not having one complaint about the experience. However, I do understand how others might have a bad experience with these organizations as the schedule is grueling and the kids work harder than they've ever work on these trips. It's definitely not for everyone. feel free to contact me on my FB page (tiffany vanderhider) if you are a parent and are on the fence about sending your kid on a mission trip.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
sell assigned seating at the Acquire the Fire events. it's crazy when all the teens run in and you can't get your group to sit together
How would you describe the help you got from this organization?
How likely are you to recommend this organization to a friend?
How do you feel you were treated by this organization?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
How did you find this group?
Around 2009, I was looking on Nick Vujicic's web site on his tour dates and happened to see he was coming to something called "Acquire the Fire" in Houston. The rest is history...
What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?
my teen is an even better and more caring person after the mission trips.
