Church on the Street offers a unique opportunity for those seeking to learn how to engage with the vulnerable, live as neighbors and overcome divisions in their own communities.

Immersion Workshops are an intensive crash course in living into community. During these trips guests learn the theological foundations and practical skills for developing reciprocal relationships while serving the most vulnerable. This experience will assist you in being effective in transforming your community.

During your trip we will cover topics including:

  • Reconciliation and Justice
  • Racial Reconciliation
  • Community Development
  • Human Trafficking
  • Poverty/Homelessness
  • When you register for a trip you can pick a focus to add on to the experience. You can choose trips designed specifically for college students or leadership teams. You can also choose trips with an extended focus on human trafficking, community development, poverty/homelessness or racial reconciliation.

    Here's what some have said about their experience:

    “I’m blown away. Never in my life have I been so close to the suffering that goes on daily…I realized that I don’t have to take a week of vacation to Atlanta to do what Christ calls of us. This week truly changed my perspective and my life. I’m taking this love that we’ve shown these people back home.” –Tyler

    “I can’t forget about the poverty here once I get home. I have to do something about it in my community.” -Sarah

    Church on the Street offers three opportuntities:

    - Weekend Trips

    - Week-long Trips

    WEEKEND TRIP

    Pick a weekend your group can come on Friday night and leave late morning Sunday. Experience a full weekend of community based learning along side our staff. There are two options available for your group: Option A - The cost of this option is $55 per person with a minimum of ten persons. You are responsible for your own meals and lodging. We can make suggestions for lodging at a local church or local hotel. Option B - The cost of this option is $175 per person with a minimum of ten persons. We provide 4 meals (3 Saturday and Breakfast Sunday. No meal is provided on friday so plan on eating before you arrive) as well as housing. Your non-refundable deposit of $300 will secure your place on the calendar for either option.

    WEEK-LONG TRIP

    This week will change your life! As you participate in the life of our community you will be changed through the personal touch of Christ in our neighbors. Not only will participants be spiritually renewed, they will also be personally transformed to recognize their vulnerable neighbors and prepared to know and love the "least of these" in their home community. Your week-long program begins Monday night at 8 p.m. and concludes on Saturday morning (although groups are welcome to stay for Saturday In The Park). Each group should have eaten dinner before arrival. The cost for the week is $350 per person and is inclusive of all meals and housing while serving with Church on the Street. The only thing you will need to supply is daily reliable transportation. Due to the intensity of the week all participants must be of high school age or older. Your non-refundable deposit of $500 will secure your place on the calendar.

    HOUSING WHILE SERVING WITH CHURCH ON THE STREET

    Church on the Street teams are housed at Savannah Suites, a modest hotel in the midst of our Midtown community. We place four people per room, but the count of your team may require us to place a fifth person in a room. In this case your team would need to bring bedding and/or an air mattress for the fifth person.
