$300 per student, including a $50 (non-refundable) deposit
A pilgrimage is a journey, often into an unknown or foreign place, where a person goes in search of new or expanded meaning about their self, others, nature, or a higher good, through the experience. It can lead to a personal transformation, after which the pilgrim returns to their daily life.
Join us as we lead our current high school students into a pilgrimage of racial reconciliation. We will travel to places such as the Whitney Plantation in Louisiana, and walk across the Edmund Pettus bridge in Selma, AL. We'll visit the Rosa Parks Museum and the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery. Finally we will visit the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, TN. Together we will study and learn as we see where God has been through slavery, through the civil rights movement, and where God is today. We'll also discuss and learn how we can continue to be people of change.
Cost is $300 including a $50 non-refundable deposit. There will be an application process including an essay.
Once registered you will receive an official application. The essay is more for your growth than anything else.
