portland Transformation Trip 2020 | student registration

Portland, OR

Registration & Deposit Deadline: Sunday, December 15th

Mandatory Pre-Trip Meeting: Sunday, January 26th, 4:15p

Trip Information

The Portland Transformation Trip is a week (Tu. - Sat.) of experiencing the inner city, learning about factors that impact poverty, and participating in God’s deep love and care for those who live on the streets. In response to God’s extravagant grace, we believe our faith calls us to continually grow in compassion for others and the world around us, and seek justice for the common good. During the Portland Transformation Trip we will engage with homelessness, racial diversity, and God’s heart for the marginalized. Our hope is that this trip will make us more aware of these same things in our own city and motivate us to actively be involved in changing the status quo.

We will be serving with Because People Matter (BPM), an organization that partners with various inner city ministries and knows a great deal about the workings of inner Portland. More information about BPM can be found here.

We don't ever want money to be a barrier for your/your student's involvement! Scholarship money is available to assist students and families with program and event payments who would otherwise be unable to participate due to financial reasons. We ask that you would pay as much as you are able, so that we are able to assist as many families as we can. All requests are confidential.
