Transportation: Provided by adult guides in personal vehicles and rented 12-passenger vans
Cost: Approximately $300 per participant after successful fundraising. **Financial assistance is available. We do not want cost to be a prohibitive factor in your family’s consideration of this opportunity for your student.**
What: Discipleship Tour – On this D-Tour we will spend Monday through Wednesday serving in Baltimore, Maryland. Examples of partner organizations include Lutheran World Relief, Sarah’s House, Maryland Foodbank, Esperanza Center, Our Daily Bread, and more! During the evenings we’ll get together to share a meal, play games, relax, and have a community gathering each night where we reflect on our service and worship together. We’ll also do a day trip to Washington, DC where we’ll visit the African American History Museum and learn about advocacy as a spiritual gift). It's a discipleship tour - it's not a week of service, it's a way of life!
Adult Guides: Spending a week with students, modeling love and grace, managing expectations, and creating healthy boundaries for teens is a big responsibility! Volunteering to serve in this capacity is a commitment to connecting with teens throughout the year. We also need adults to commit to coordinating and serving at fundraisers. This is a requirement and decisions will be made on this basis.
