campaign1-849x1024If you and your group of hard fighting soldiers are wanting to help reach out to the poor of the inner city by conducting a community evangelism campaign, then you are at the right starting point.

The inner city is a ministry rich environment where your group – youth, college students and young adults, as well as older adults and senior citizens can hone their disciple making skills; it is a place for you and your group to grow and to bring the Gospel into the lives of people who are discouraged and feel they have no hope.

Your primary contact to schedule a mission trip to Mobile is Chuck Griffis, minister serving with the Mobile Inner City church of Christ. His email address: His cell phone number: (251) 583-0836.

In comparison to other mission points, most campaign groups find a visit to Mobile to serve in the inner city to be very cost effective. We are confident that you and your group will have had a very rewarding experience by the time you complete your time with us!

  • Housing is your responsibility, however Chuck will be glad to provide you contact information to area congregations who have allowed numerous campaign groups to stay at their buildings over the years free of charge. You and your group will need to bring air mattresses and sleeping bags. Otherwise, there are motels in the area.
  • Meals are your responsibility. We ask that you plan to have your lunches at our facility, or eat lunch at one of the restaurants nearby our location. Some supper time meals may need to be at the Inner City church building, as well.
  • There is a campaign cost of $25.00 per person over the age of 9 to help offset expenses, such as utilities, office supplies, fuel (diesel buses), and to help provide funding for inner city kids that accompany campaign groups.
  • We ask that you pay for any materials needed for your work with us, i.e. work projects on buildings and grounds, VBS material, etc … This expense is separate from the per person campaign cost.
  • For you and your groups safety, we ask that you follow the guidance provided by Chuck Griffis.
  • Invite Chuck Griffis to come and make a presentation to your congregation, church leaders, or mission team. This way many questions you and your group may have can be answered to give you the information you need in planning a trip to the inner city of Mobile, Alabama.
  • Please feel free to dress casually during the time you are here; you should bring comfortable clothes and shoes conducive to community work.
