DR GP 2019: RECONCILING ALL THINGS MAY 9-18, 2019 APPROX. COST: $1200-1500 PER STUDENT DEADLINE TO APPLY: February 20, 2019
Next May, New England InterVarsity is partnering with ADEE (Asociacion Dominicana Estudiantes Evangelicos) for a 10 day service learning Global Program called RECONCILING ALL THINGS.
We will be partnering with IFES DR to address issues which both Americans and Dominicans are wrestling with: Gender, Race and the Environment. We will address how God is reconciling these things through his Kingdom people. We hope to work with IJM ( Urbana session) with Gender issues surrounding sex trafficking, have students involved in massive beach plastics cleanup projects, and work in areas of racial reconciliation. We will be doing discipleship cycles in Circle 4 of healing and restoration. I hope is to practice a discipleship cycle in each of the areas of Gender, Environment, and race by having practical (on the ground) experiences and Scriptural teaching on the topic, and then specific personal and team response.
