2022 Transformation Trip
Through Transformation Trips, teams of volunteers do more than come to Portland to serve. They are invited to leave the comfort of their homes, schools, churches, and socioeconomic statuses in order to
GO with us on a journey of LEARNING.
Together, we peel back layers of stereotypes, judgements, and fear as we build relationships with some of Portland’s most marginalized populations and delve into a series of interactive learning activities that are designed to break down the barriers between us, teach radical love, and inspire intentional living. Afterwards, teams RETURN home and RESPOND
creatively to the unique cry of their own city.
