Reverse New York is a special trip designed at racial reconciliation for the kingdom of God. Our world is becoming more and more diverse, and and the need to learn to be with and minister to people of all ethnicitiies has never been higher. Students on this trip will come on an application only basis, and must have a strong desire for racial reconciliation.
The trip will be co-led by Shacha Nall, who is a devout Christian and consultant for major corporation and organizations on the issue of racial reconciliation. Students will be actively trained by her on a daily basis, and will dive deeply into the history of racial injustice as well as learning the current stories of what is happening in the lives of their peers.
We are looking for a maximum of 15 students and five leaders. There will be students and leaders of multiple ethnicities and cultural backgrounds on this trip.
A typical day will include reconciliation trainings (that students will be able to take into their daily lives and schools), devotions, time to get to know each other, understanding cultural identity and Christian identity, serving in NYC (homeless shelters, kitchens, etc), and meeting with major NYC faith leaders (like Craig Mayes of the NYC Rescue Mission).
