HS SUMMER MISSION TRIP
2019 Rome Italy
This summer, 32 youth and 7 adults will walk in the footsteps of Paul and study the origins of the early Christians in Rome. The group will then stay at Casa Cares, a retreat center of the Waldensian Church outside of Florence, where they will learn about Christian responses to contemporary issues like the Climate Crisis and the Plight of Displaced Peoples.
