Sign up for spring break trips to assist with disaster recovery

Thursday, January 19th, 2023

Aiming to learn and serve alongside partners in proximity to disaster relief, recovery and development efforts, the Office for Spiritual Life is recruiting a group of eight to 12 students to spend spring break in Whatcom County, Washington, and work alongside World Renew DRS partners in the area from the Whatcom Long Term Recovery Group.

Whatcom County is the home of the Nooksack River, which had historic flooding in November 2021. (Read more about the flooding here and see a short video here.)

To cultivate spiritual growth-rich environments for students, our partners and the communities we serve, we engage participants in daily rhythms of solitude, prayer, shared cooking/meals, meaningful service and learning, Bible study, worship, individual and team reflection, immersion in outdoor nature and local cultures, recreation, and fun.

Undergraduate participants will also be eligible to gain up to five SpiL/chapel elective credits for this experience.

If there is an overabundance of interest from students and employees, an additional SpiL Trip will be added to serve World Renew partners in neighboring Okanogan County, Washington, in their continued recovery from wildfires in 2021.

George Fox employees who would like to participate in a SpiL Trip are encouraged to apply to be a SpiL trip mentor.

  • Dates: Spring break, March 25 to April 1
  • Cost per person: $175 ($50 deposit due Jan. 25)
  • Application deadline: Feb. 19
  • Mandatory training dates: 7 to 8 p.m. March 7, 14 and 21
