Renew (Winter Interim)

Go Beyond boundaries; live courageously

There are some things you just can't teach in a classroom. Renew is a seven day program for our high school students in January. Students can choose a service trip opportunity (both locally and out-of-state), intern, or take a class on campus that's not offered during the semester. Our Renew program is just one more way we develop students into life-long servant leaders. 

In 2022:
173 Students embarked on serve trips
30 Courses with 5 Guest Instructors
35 Student Internships

"We want to thank you for your service and guidance on the Timothy Costa Rica Renew trip. This mission trip has been the single most defining experience of our son's high school career. The hard work, benevolence, and school comradery has been life-changing. He has gained a better understanding of God’s world and his own personal faith. He has gained self-confidence, strength, and a sense of purpose. I can’t thank you enough for your vision, leadership, and sacrifice."

Renew Serve Trip Application

The application for 23-24 Renew Serve Trips will open on Monday, April 3. Information will be sent to parents and students via email then.

Trip Description:  During Honduras Serve students will serve together as a team and minister to orphaned children and under-resourced families and adults at seven different ministry sites in the cities of Comayagua and Tegucigalpa, Honduras. We will be going into impoverished areas to create relationships, share Christ, perform light work, serve, and do random acts of kindness. We will also visit and learn about the work at ASJ in Tegucigalpa, which is the capital of Honduras. The Association for a More Just Society is a Christian organization focused on the fight against corruption and violence in Honduras. We are grateful that the president of All God’s Children (AGC), Al Heerema, will join us for this trip. AGC has been leading short-term mission trips to Honduras for over 30 years. Our experience is that these trips are life changing and transformative for students and adults alike. We believe that God will use this trip for His purposes and His Kingdom.
