My Night In a Box

The best way of thinking of My Night in a Box is as a sleepover with a purpose. My Night in a Box is an overnight discipleship experience for local church student ministries to teach, engage, and motivate each other to get involved with City Union Mission, while hosting a simple fund raiser for the mission.

The model is simple. Take for example a small church group of ten students. These ten kids would recruit ten sponsors each at $10 to sponsor their night in a box. On Friday afternoon arrival at their church students serve a Rescue meal, receive Biblical teaching, spend the night outdoors in a box, scavenger hunt for supper, and do a Saturday park cleanup and prayer walk. The goal is that students have a weekend of transformation through experience or learning by doing.
