     Youth in Mission is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization set up to aid teens and young adults to serve on mission fields. Any youth serious and passionate about the work, but struggling to financially fund their trip, is eligible to apply. Our scholarships enable youth to focus on Christ's work of helping others rather than worrying about how to raise all the travel money it takes to get there.


     This non-profit charity was founded by Pip Arnold (semi-finalist on Season 2 NBC's "The Voice") and Lexis Hay, in honor of her late husband Stewart Hay, who lived his life for youth in mission work.  Mission scholarships are distributed annually.

     Young missionaries spread the Word of Christ through serving on anything from medical missions to providing clean water in impoverished areas to building and repairing homes and schools for the needy, and much more, both domestically and internationally.
