For three weeks in the summer of 2019, SPRINT students are serving and learning in Barranquilla, a city on Colombia’s northern coast. This dynamic city is a great place for our team to engage in social change issues of community development, local and global social issues, and the intersection of faith and reconciliation.
SPRINT is partnering with Corporación Universitaria Reformada (Reformed University) of the Iglesia Presbiteriana de Colombia (Presbyterian Church of Colombia) in Barranquilla. Community leaders will guide our team in learning about the history, culture, and social issues of Colombia. The team will be serving alongside local leaders in their community youth programs.
We have developed a relationship with these partners over several years, and hosted their students in 2017 for the annual Perkins Lecture Series and Justice Speaks student conference. We look forward to continuing to grow our partnership with our friends in Colombia through our SPRINT trips.
