Serving Jesus Christ in our own Jerusalem

Jerusalem Project is designed as a local mission effort to help those in our “Jerusalem” that may not be able to help themselves (whether physically or financially). However, in serving others, we are teaching our students and adults that we, as individual churches, can and should work together for the cause of Christ.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.   Acts 1:8

Jerusalem Project serves South Carolina communities in Cherokee County, Spartanburg County, and Union County.

“Jerusalem Project is the one of the highlights of our summer as a family. We are able to spend the week working along side of our friends on mission projects within our community and then worship together each night. It’s an amazing week for us!”

“Jerusalem Project for me is a passion. To see so many hundreds of teens and adults come together from 30+ different churches to fulfill the command given by Jesus Christ in Acts 1:8.”to go and be a witness in Jerusalem (our hometown) is such a blessing. Also the blessing that I have had is to watch God grow JP to three other counties has been mind-blowing. Our goal is to serve Christ and to do so in “our Jerusalem” to the best of our abilities.Continue to pray as God takes JP to the next level every year.
God Bless”

JP2018 – Information you need to know!

JP2018 – This post is primarily geared toward church leaders, but as a participant this information is relevant to you as well.

Church Leaders Only – Confirm that your church will be participating at JP 2018.  You can do this by simply going to,and click at the top of the homepage “Church Registration Open.”   This year, you will have all your participants (adults and students) fill out a paper form.  Then the group leader will input everyone into a form online (at a later date).

ADULTS! We need adults to be crew chiefs and crew encouragers. Remember, we can’t do JP without them.


Begin collecting the paper forms.  Set a deadline to have this done.  Anyone who has to register after June 1stwill suffer a significant price increase.  (Cherokee County JP)


Continue collecting papers. Be on the lookout for any important information via email and Facebook.

Input your church’s participants before June 1st.  Anyone registered by June 1stis only $50. (Cherokee County JP)

Several churches are using the month of May to help raise funds for JP by treating it like Annie Armstrong and Lottie moon with a month long offering goal for JP.  This helps us greatly.


Register any late additions.  Anyone registered after June 1stwill have to pay $75. (Cherokee County JP)
