THE WATER IS RISING, BUT SO AM I.
I AM NOT GOING UNDER, BUT OVER.
Come spend a year living in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Your year will be filled with wonderful teaching, community connections, and intentional discipleship. You will have the chance to question, reaffirm, discover and rediscover who Christ is within our world, our neighbourhood, and ourselves.
The DTES is a unique community steeped in the blatant suffering and obvious dignity of the neighbours and residents. During your time at The War College, you will be encouraged to discover what it means to follow Christ. You will be introduced to the Kingdom of God, (that which is Now and Not Yet) through the stories and connections of neighbours and friends in the community. Stand up to a world that encourages us to be distracted, blind and busy. Come and find beauty in sorrow, realize the blessings of the poor, and walk alongside brothers and sisters in Christ.
Spend a year to transform your life, so that your life can transform the world.
