Hot off the heels of spending time in Greece the Burnham Center for Global Engagement is already preparing for 5 potential trips for the summer of 2019. Itineraries and plans are being assembled for trips to Southern Texas and Israel. Three other possible locations for students to serve are Panama, India, and Utah.More details will be announced about this summer opportunities as they are being put together.
2019 Texas Trip (May 17-26)Students, faculty, staff and friends have the opportunity to visit Alianza Cristiana del Valle church in southern Texas. The church is about as far south in Texas as one can get and within several miles of the Mexico border. We will not be crossing the border into Mexico, so passports are not necessary. However, we will be working with people in the church. Mornings will be filled with work projects and then the evenings with vacation Bible school for the kids and adult discipleship lessons. Opportunities on this trip also include leading a worship time in the evenings.
