Young Adult Mission Trip
- Saturday, December 29 or Sunday, Dec 30, 2018 to Friday, January 4 or Saturday, January 5, 2019 (exact dates depend on lowest flight costs)
For this year's Young Adult Mission Trip, we are excited to be going to San Juan, Puerto Rico! We will be lodging in the Montefloures Presbyterian Church, completing a construction project and running a VBS. Puerto Rico is continuing to recover from Hurricanes Irma and Maria that devastated the island in September 2017, and only now, in the spring of 2018, are they ready to accept mission groups. To get on the “interested” list for this trip and have a copy of the trip Info Packet emailed to you, contact Bruce Burkelman at . In addition to Knox young adults and their friends (college age and beyond), we also need a few older adult sponsors, so please prayerfully consider joining us. The trip informational meeting for participants and parents/guardians will be from 10:00 am to 11:00 am on Saturday June 9th in the Knox basement and commitments to go are required by Sunday June 24th.
Prayers for a successful mission trip and the financial support from the Knox community, friends and family are appreciated. Donations are accepted by check, cash or online. Click here to get Donation Instructions (It is suggested you print out these instructions for online donations).

Knox Young Adult Parties
Knox holds large group parties for Young Adults (college age and young professionals) twice a year. Each year we have a Christmas gathering over winter break on December 26th, the day after Christmas, which is called “Boxing Day” in many parts of the world. There is also a "Summer Kick Off" party in the late spring. These parties are a great time to reunite with your Knox friends for food, drink, games and fellowship. Return to this page a few months before each party for more information.
Go & Serve Young Adult Leaders
For every Go & Serve high school mission trip in June, Young Adults serve integral leadership roles. These Young Adults serve on work teams, lead small groups and build mentor relationships with our high schoolers. Contact our Youth and Young Adult Leader, David Newby if you are interested in serving in this capacity. Young Adults must have been out of high school for at least two years.
Young Adult Weekly Fellowship
This gathering is on hiatus until spring. Email Bruce if you want to be contacted when it restarts.
The Knox Young Adult group (graduated high school to early 30s) meets Monday nights from 5:30 to 7:00 pm (but drop in when you can) at Quigley’s restaurant in downtown Naperville on Jefferson Ave, one block east of Washington St. Park on the upper deck of the parking garage off Jefferson, and when you walk back down the ramp, Quigley’s is across the street to the right. Mondays are usually $5 angus hamburger night (yum!), but other items are also on the menu. We look forward to having you join us for food and fellowship. Contact Bruce at to be added to the weekly text update for this group that also includes invites to our special events.
