CSM Philly: Our Ministry partners work day in and day out to help those who need it most. They show God's grace daily.
CSM Washington DC: We form a strong relationship with them over the years; becoming "family" with them. Their feedback about our ministry and how we can serve most effectively. Their commitment to long-term life change and systems change in our cities. They welcome us to come alongside them serve with them. We share victories of good things God is doing in the city.
Why we love our groups...CSM Boston: I really love sharing my home with people from across the country and engaging them in the work God is doing here! It means a lot to me that people care enough about Boston to come and serve for a week!

CSM Philly: Our groups are energetic. They are hard-working. They are willing to try anything and see God even outside of their comfort zones.
CSM Washington DC: All the hard work that goes into planning a trip. They go to a city away from their own and serve those in need. They bring donations for CSM and our ministry partners. All the inside jokes and fun times we have when they're in town. Keeping in touch after their trip and hearing how they were impacted. Breathing fresh life into our CSM staff and our cities. Being inspired by their team unity. They are willing to serve in any way we ask them, even the mundane tasks. Hearing them pray for our city on the prayer tour
