Pastors Caleb Davisson and Clark Schultz worked with WELS Kingdom Workers to specify three unique locations and four different student trips that would help Warrior teens who wanted to “GO” with the Gospel in summer 2015. With the adult assistance of teachers Davisson, Nathan Koerber and varsity volleyball coach Jenny Krauklis, 15 Warriors headed out to Toronto, to Jersey and to Louisville to help with canvassing and camps and VBS. Of course, they were able to see the sights and beauty of creation on the way, which made these mission trips a sweet lifetime memory for all involved.
