By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA Hundreds of teenagers from across Virginia came to Charlottesville for "Mission Madness."

The event hosted by University Baptist Church is a weekend full of service and fellowship.

On Saturday, the group of 250 teens ages 12 to 18 spread out to more than 20 service sites throughout Charlottesville to volunteer for various organizations including Habitat for Humanity, AHIP, The Ronald McDonald House and The Salvation Army.

"It's incredibly important for the youth to have opportunities to engage in their community," said youth ministry coordinator Erin Brown. "At University Baptist, we are just thrilled for the opportunity to partner with and work with and assist so many of our community partners in and around Charlottesville. "

The teens came from all over the Commonwealth and even as far away as South Carolina.
