Short-Term Service Learning | Break on Impact
Every spring break, members of the Covenant community participate in Break on Impact, spreading across the globe to serve and learn about cross‐cultural ministries. Covenant staff and students will be retruning to Clarkston, Georgia and the Yakama Indian Reservation this year.
Clarkston, Georgia, has been a haven for refugees since the 1990s. These refugees, however, often struggle to make their way in a new country with little or no connections. Partnering with Friends of Refugees, this team of Covenant students hopes to better understand the challenges refugees face during the resettlement process and to learn how the church can be the hands and feet of Christ in welcoming strangers to our country. The trip will involve worship with a church plant in the refugee community, learning about and from refugees and immigrants, and serving with the Clarkston community.
Yakama Indian Reservation
This team will work with Sacred Road Ministries on the Yakama Indian Reservation in Eastern Washington. They desire to lovingly respond to the physical, emotional, and social needs of the Yakama in order to address their deeper spiritual need. This team will be assisting Sacred Road by reaching out to the children of the Reservation by leading afternoon Bible clubs and participating in a variety of work projects.
Applications will be available in October, and are due by November 21.
