Service Over Self exists to glorify God by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed through urban home repair camps.

Spring Break

College students travel from all across the country to partner with inner-city homeowners in making their homes warmer, safer and drier. Through relationship building and home repair, groups are invited to participate the kingdom work of bringing renewal in our city.

Summer Camp

SOS offers Junior High and High School students the chance to sacrifice a week of their summer to immerse themselves in the inner-city of Memphis. Students partner with homeowners to serve Memphis and our Savior by repairing homes in the Binghampton and Orange Mound neighborhoods.

The Academy

The SOS Academy is a one year internship that trains and equips 19-26 year olds to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with their God in an urban context. Interns will gain practical urban ministry experience and will be discipled as followers of Jesus Christ as they live incarnationally in a low-income urban neighborhood in Memphis, TN.

SOS Builds

SOS Builds is an after school program for urban youth providing educational, character, and leadership enrichment through hands-on construction training. Through SOS Builds, urban youth will gain practical vocational skills, learn to be servant leaders, and grow as followers of Jesus.
