26 West Church: Youth Trip to Uganda

July 6-21, 2018


Trip Cost: $3,950
Application Deadline: March 1, 2018

July 2018 marks an exciting new chapter in the life of the young people of 26 West Church. This summer we’ll be taking our first high school serve trip to Uganda. Heading out from Portland on July 6th, we’ll be flying into Kampala and during the next week will get to serve and love the kids of Bethany Village though putting on a vacation bible school and by being willing to help them in whatever ways make the most sense while we're there.

Bethany Village is rural company outside of Kampala, Uganda on the banks Lake Victoria. This community is made up of a primary school, a large farm, and seven orphanage homes caring for over 130 children. Their vision is to teach people and communities to become self-sustaining within a nation where jobs can be scarce. Bethany Village is a part of African Renewal Ministries, a long-time partner of the A Jesus Church family network and Hear the Cry.

On the way home, we’ll get to spend a day in Amsterdam to allow our young people an even greater awareness of the largeness of culture and the Gospel.

Nate Kupish and Cheryl Wardell will be leading our trip (room for twelve high schoolers) along with a few other key youth leaders from 26 West Church.
