Kenya Learning Journey
We will be visiting two of our dear education-focused partners based in some of Kenya’s most underserved communities. One partner is located in the bustling city of Nairobi, and the other is in a mountainous, rural community near Naivasha. This is a great trip for educators, those who work with special needs populations, or if you are simply interested in learning more about the complex contexts in which our partners work.
Trip Dates: July 22-29, 2023
Over 8 weeks we will consider how to more fully engage as everyday peacemakers. Participants will explore how the work of making peace in both our inner and outer worlds are inextricably linked. Along the way, in both larger group discussions and small group contexts, we will participate in spiritual formation practices (i.e. Prayer of Examen), begin to dig into identity and calling (who am I and what’s mine to give?), consider practically how we might advocate for the marginalized, and pursue justice in our world (neighborhood walks, and connecting with local organizations).

Part of transformative learning includes getting to know the communities that are closest to us. Throughout the year we offer different learning experiences through neighborhood walks. We take time to explore the history of the neighborhood and people from the community.
Stay tuned for our next neighborhood walk!

DETENTION CENTER VISITS
Project Renew partners closely with Casa de Paz to support immigrants in detention centers around the country, including the Aurora Contract Detention Facility near 30th & Peoria. We are very supportive of both their letter writing program (Cartas de Paz) and the Visitation program. A number of Denver Community Church members have volunteered with both programs, as we believe they provide an opportunity to be peacemakers in the midst of a broken immigration system.
If you have questions about either program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

THE IMMIGRANT JOURNEY
The Immigrant Journey is a learning immersion trip at the US/Mexico border with the Global Immersion Project. The GIP team leads this 3-day intensive with a network of ministries and leaders that serve the immigrant/refugee population that are near the Tijuana border. Our philosophy is that these missional experiences are less an opportunity to “serve on the ground” but rather an experience that cultivates missional reflection and learning that we take back to our home context. Our hope at DCC is that these experiences will inform our thinking and deepen our engagement with immigrants here in Denver as peacemakers.
