GO RWANDA Student Leaders
Calling all High School Students! This trip is for you! Do not miss out on this incredible opportunity to build relationships with our brothers and sisters in Christ at Agape Community Church in Rwanda. As Rwanda continues the work of reconciliation after the 1994 genocide, there is something unique and beautiful about this place that has experienced so much pain. The people are joyful, full of life and committed to forgiveness and healing in their nation. There’s so much for all of us to learn from their incredible journey and strength. This trip will change you and the way you see the world. It will change the way you experience grace and forgiveness. You will have an opportunity to be stretched and lead, sharing your faith and encouraging Rwandan youth in their own. When you go on mission with Jesus, you never come back the same. Join us!
