Why should my congregation take a trip?
- Traveling as a congregation can be a powerful experience. You don’t just travel together – you also prepare together, learn together, and think about how to integrate the experience together.
- Sending multiple people from a congregation on a journey amplifies the impact of the experience. Once home, participants can share their experience with the rest of the congregation and help deepen the congregation’s commitment to justice work.
Where can we go and what justice issue will we learn about?
- Please visit our destinations page to learn more about where our journeys go. Below is a brief snapshot:
How many congregants can go?
- For most programs, we need at least 10 participants for a journey to run and can accommodate 15-18 total.
- If you don’t think you can get 10 people to from your own congregation, you can partner with another, neighboring congregation.
How much will it cost?
- We ask for a $1,000 non-refundable deposit to hold specific dates for congregations. This can be paid by the church itself or by individual members.
- Prices for each individual participant will depend on the trip destination and duration.
