Summer Impact 2018 - Reel to Real

Join Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church next summer and learn what Biblical truths and faith lessons can be found in the world of film/movies.  You will learn together through Bible study, worship, and hands on experiences working to impact those living in poverty and homelessness in Cincinnati. Summer Impact groups work alongside nine city ministry partners ministering to children in a camp setting or literacy setting, working alongside contractors as they create affordable housing, alongside a furniture bank distributing furniture to families who have just obtained permanent housing, as well as many other partners and experiences.


In order to allow the experiences to run smoothly for youth groups who come to the city, Hyde Park Community UMC employ 3-5 interns each summer. Interns are the heart and soul of the experience. They spend their time leading Bible studies, serving alongside the teams for the week, helping to coordinate and lead nightly worship, and ultimately serving as the connection point between the teams who come to serve and our ministry partnerships. If you have completed their first year of college (or equivalent experience), have a growing relationship with Jesus, are interested in working with middle and high school youth during the summer, and have a heart for mission,  you can find more internship specifics and information at


If you are part of a church group looking for an unforgettable mission experience of building relationships with those in the city, visit for available dates, cost, and to submit a group application.
