Youth Mission Auction


UPC youth participate in mission activities and trips all year long. In 2018, our 6th through 12th graders will put their faith into action by partnering with nine local service agencies and traveling across the state and world to participate in short-term missions. The annual Youth Mission Auction is the primary fundraising event for the youth missions program. Your support is essential to provide meaningful and transformational mission experiences for students by keeping participation costs reasonable and providing necessary materials for our trips and projects. Please partner with the Youth Mission & Ministry community as we grow and serve from the foundation of Jesus Christ. To donate an item or cash and preview our online catalog, please check out the Youth Mission Auction website.
