Q: What is Youth Rush?
Youth Rush is a summer literature evangelism and it is done by visiting people in diverse communities and sharing Christ-focused books.

Q: What does a normal week in Youth Rush look like?
Youth Rush works Sunday-Thursday for ten weeks, during the summer. After breakfast, worship, and training, missionaries hit the streets, offering people books and free community services, including Bible studies.
