Portland is one of the most exciting cities in the world—we’ve even got our own TV show. It hosts a culture of creativity and activism. The city has pockets of restaurants, coffeeshops, and creative businesses in every neighborhood. Portland is home to over 2 million people, and 100,000 of those are college students. We want to be part of all of these communities experiencing Christ’s love.
There are many hidden realities to this city; Portland has the highest number of strip clubs per capita in the United States and is a hot-bed for human trafficking. As the city becomes more popular, gentrification and homelessness are on the rise. Areas of the city have seen diverse growth, but much to the detriment of people who have been living here for generations.
We believe that Portland is being transformed by God and He is inviting us to be a part of it. We also believe He is doing amazing work around the world, and that your experience in the city will be transferable to communities all over. For three weeks, we do intensive training, development, and discipleship. We will work with local organizations and churches to learn and serve with experts in the city on topics like culture competency, sexuality, and how the gospel intersects in all areas of our lives. While living on one of the city campuses, we'll be spending much of our time engaging other college students in spiritual conversations.
We are serious about developing you as a leader. You will gain real-world training and equipping, from group discussions and service opportunities to one-on-one discipleship. We expect the experiences you have here will set you up to be a strategic leader wherever you go after this summer, as we walk with Jesus together in new ways.
