$100/box

Any amount to the kitchen in Congrejo Church

COST: $100/box

It’s not often that “global mission” and “feasible” share the same sentence. While mission is a never-ending journey we embark on as we become closer with Jesus, it’s not always the most practical thing to partner in when that mission is made global … until today.

University Carillon has partnered with Sucher Ministries (in the Dominican Republic) for over 15 years and has been fortunate to send teams to the DR every summer to serve, until recently. This year, we’re bringing global missions to your front door—through a Virtual Mission Trip!

Jump into a week of our DR Mission Trip where you will be able to immerse yourself in culture through virtual tours, Dominican meals, ministry videos, Bible stories and more! While you get a peek into the ministry currently happening in the DR, explore how Jesus is the one thing we can always count on to connect us beyond border, language, culture and distance.

As we do with in-person mission trips, we will have a major project that will be funded through this virtual trip! We will be helping to add a kitchen in the Congrejo Church.

This summer—with the help of new resources and videos—our hope is that Jesus can connect you and your family to global missions through this Virtual Mission Trip.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Still have questions? Contact elainemyers@universitycarillon.net.

Who can participate?
This trip was designed with you in mind! Anyone (all ages) interested in learning more about global missions, the Sucher ministry or how you can live missionally right where you’re at. If you’ve ever wanted to go on a mission trip but haven’t had the opportunity (for whatever reason), this is for you!

Can my whole family participate?
Yes! While the video content is applicable to everyone (just wait … there’s some really cool footage), you will have some age-specific content/activities in the box! This is a great “trip” for the whole family to engage in!

I (we) don’t have any experience with global missions … is this a good place to start?
We actually think this is the best experience—given our circumstances—to start your journey of partnering with Jesus in global missions! Our hope is for you to have real and tangible experiences on this “trip” to help you understand a little more about global missions … and maybe one day joining us on an in-person trip!

What’s in the box?
Well as with every global mission trip … it’s important to have the essentials: a boarding pass with your name on it, a personal passport and an itinerary! But don’t worry—we’ve got everything else covered, too. Supplies for activities, cooking lessons and more will be provided in the box! …and yes, it’s one box per household! We’ll outfit your box to your household after you register.

It’s a “week long” trip … what does that look like?
We’re setting up the week to look similar to a week you would experience in the DR on a mission trip! Places you would go, people you would meet, activities you would do, meals you would eat, etc. Each day “begins” at 9 AM and has some live, but mostly pre-recorded content. You can travel and explore at your own pace … but we would love for you to participate in some LIVE components (ex: morning devotional), however, it’s not required. Each day should take no more than 3 hours to complete (with activity times included).

“At your own pace.” What do you mean by that?
One advantage to this virtual mission trip is that you control the pace at which you experience it! Usually, we’re on a somewhat strict schedule in the DR for projects, meals, places to be, etc. But on the virtual mission trip, each day new content will become available and it’s up to you to press “play.” You can watch videos, choose which activities you want to participate in, decide if you want to watch the cooking video later and make the recipe for dinner … it’s up to you!

Is there a project that will be completed in the Dominican Republic through this trip like previous years?
As we do with in-person mission trips, we will have a major project that will be funded through this virtual trip! We will be helping to add a kitchen in the Congrejo Church.

Can I sponsor a box for family to participate?
Yes! You can sponsor a box for a family to participate. You can do so by going to the payments page and choose “DR Virtual Mission Trip” as the fund.

Can I donate to the major project being completed in the Dominican Republic (the kitchen in Congrejo Church)?
Yes! You can do so by going to the payments page and choose “DR Virtual Mission Trip” as the fund.

What will we experience?
An easy way to sum it up: a lot of new content! Whether you’ve been on this trip before, or it’s your first ever mission trip, you’ll have access to A LOT of new footage, recipes, interviews and more. We had a small team head to the Dominican Republic this year to capture some new footage, catch up with some old friends and bring back some great memories for you to share in!

Our hope is this is a transformative trip—that you experience mission through the lens of Jesus. And we’re ready to help you with some next steps beyond this point.

What do I need to participate?
First off—your willingness to explore! That’s a great place to start. Specifically, though, you’ll need: a computer, internet access (videos available via universitycarillon.net), and your box!

Converge is a week-long, in-community mission trip we host at EPIC every summer! Each year it’s an incredible time to gather students together, join God in loving Orlando through service and mission work and have a blast doing it. While Converge will look a little different this year as we continue to assess the impact of COVID-19, we’re so excited to be able to make Converge happen in some capacity! Please check our Converge FAQs below for any questions about Registration, COVID-19 or what camp will look like this year.

Registration – Getting Started

STEP 1: ONLINE CARD REGISTRATION (Sunday, April 25 at 8PM)
Short online card to gather (1) your desire to join us for Converge 2021 and (2) some basic contact information.

STEP 2: Receive EMAIL
Wait for an email from terrihall@universitycarillon.net that will go out on Monday, April 26 by NOON. This email will let you know if you have a spot or are on the waiting list. (Those who have a spot in Converge, will receive “Step 3” – the complete online registration form.)

CONVERGE FAQ

REGISTRATION FAQ

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES?
We understand things happen! Please make sure you have a reliable, charged computer or phone and WiFi to limit difficulties.

AFTER FILLING OUT ONLINE CARD REGISTRATION, WHAT HAPPENS? SHOULD I GET AN EMAIL OR SOMETHING?
Yes! The ONLINE CARD is Step 1. After you submit the card, you should receive an email confirmation. This email is simply a confirmation your form for this event is in our system. Don’t panic if you don’t get an email. Sometimes the emails can be delayed, but that does not mean you aren’t in the system. Email web@universitycarillon.net and we will verify your registration was received.

WHEN WILL I KNOW IF I’M IN?
You can expect an email on Monday, April 26 before noon letting you know if you have a spot or are on the waiting list. This email will be from terrihall@universitycarillon.net. Receiving this email is Step 2.

WHY ARE THE CARDS SO SHORT? AREN’T THEY MISSING NORMAL CONVERGE REGISTRATION INFO?
The first form is pretty short – with much less information than normal! – because this form is only “Step 1” of Converge registration. This online card is to gather (1) your desire to join us for Converge 2021 and (2) some basic contact information.

If you receive an email on Monday letting you know you have a spot (Step 2), you will receive a link to Step 3 – the complete online registration form. This will need to be filled out by Friday, April 30 to hold your spot.

WHAT ABOUT PAYMENT?
That’s Step 4! For those with spots, your Monday email will include a link to payment (preferred) or instructions of how to pay by check. Full payments must be made by Sunday May 16. Otherwise your spot will be released to the next person on the waiting list.

If you need to coordinate a payment plan or have any questions about scholarships, please don’t hesitate to reach out to holly@boredonsunday.com. We never want cost to be the reason a student can’t come. We’re happy to work with you!

COVID-19 FAQ

The safety of all students and leaders at Converge is the top priority for our team. In the evolving landscape of COVID-19, we are continually assessing appropriate measures which need to be taken to provide a safe and fun Converge for all involved. We will be updating parents often and in detail with any details or adjustments.

HOW DIFFERENT WILL CONVERGE BE THIS YEAR?
Over the past few weeks and months, we have been praying and paying attention to CDC and local guidelines, as well as the trajectory of cases in Orlando. The CDC recently released updated guidelines, both generally and specifically for summer camps that said if you’re fully vaccinated, masks and social distancing do not need to be required for a safe camp experience (and if you are not fully vaccinated, a mask and/or social distancing is still a good idea when indoors). Those are guidelines we definitely didn’t expect to be possible when we first started planning Converge! But especially knowing so many students and leaders have been vaccinated, we believe we can have a safe, fun Converge with that policy in place. We will also be making overnight an option.

The safety of all students and leaders at Converge is still our top priority, and we’ll still have a few safety guidelines in place to make sure it’s a safe week! But we’re cautiously hopeful and honestly surprised that Converge might be able to safely look more normal than we originally thought.

WHAT SORT OF SAFETY MEASURES CAN I EXPECT?
Please note that the current local government guidelines will be used to evaluate and adjust the following measures.
UPDATE June 14

More specifically…a few safety measures will include (but are not limited to)…

  • Masks – For students and leaders who have been fully vaccinated, as defined by the CDC, masks and social distancing will not be required.
    For those who have not been fully vaccinated, we encourage you to get vaccinated, and ask and highly recommend you to continue wearing a mask when indoors. (For everyone, some service sites may require masks, social distancing or other precautions.) If students feel more comfortable wearing a mask, regardless of vaccination status, they are still more than welcome to.
  • Should potential symptoms for COVID-19 develop during Converge, the student will be immediately required to isolate in a set-apart room. Parents will be contacted immediately to come pick up their student.
  • Each morning before coming into the Worship Center for breakfast, we will have daily temperature checks to make sure everyone is staying healthy during the week.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available all throughout meeting spaces, rooms, and vehicles. All students will also receive a personal hand sanitizer upon arrival.
  • We are not planning on using Shower Homes as in previous years. To limit crowding in bathrooms, we will utilize the safe, shielded outdoor showers (built for our Vintage Retreat last year); these are in completely separate guy / girl areas. For these showers, students must wear swimsuits.
  • To maximize safety and minimize the spread of germs, our usual lunch-packing (a sandwich-making all-hands-on-deck buffet) will also be changing.
Please email holly@boredonsunday.com with any more specific questions.

WILL CONVERGE BE AN OVERNIGHT CAMP?
Yes! Given an unexpected & encouraging trajectory of COVID-19, students are welcome to stay overnight. Overnight is optional. Parents and students have the option to decide their safest preference. For anyone not staying overnight, we will release daily drop-off and pick-up times soon.

WHEN WILL WE KNOW ALL THIS STUFF FOR SURE?
The closer Converge gets, the more clear things will become! We will update parents in detail and as often as we have further clarity.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I GET COVID-19 BEFORE CAMP, OR HAVE ANOTHER COVID-19 RELATED ISSUE, AND I NEED TO CANCEL?
All staff and camp families should be aware of COVID-19 symptoms and should remain at home if they feel sick or have been exposed to someone who is sick. Students: we love you and want you to come…but more than that, we want you to stay safe and healthy!

If you are unable to attend Converge due to the impact of COVID-19, please reach out to holly@boredonsunday.com immediately. If you are unable to attend Converge due to the impact of COVID-19, we will work with you on a case-by-case basis in refunding your registration costs.

Please note that if you choose not to attend Converge due to a situation unrelated to COVID-19, the UC cancellation policy (no camp refunds) would apply.

Summer is coming quick and we can’t think of a better way for current 5th graders to enjoy theirs than spending it at EPIC’s 6th GRADE CAMP! All students entering 6th grade in the fall of 2021 are welcome and invited to join. There will be plenty of games, sports, team challenges, hangout time in the EPIC game room, and more. Each day will also include snack, a short devotional, and small group time. The week will culminate with a fun day! This is a great opportunity for them to meet other students making that next big step into middle school, as well as get connected to EPIC before the year even begins.

This year we are limiting registration so we can stay safe while having an incredibly fun week! After we are full, you’re still welcome to sign up for the Waitlist in case someone drops out, or we’re able to safely open a few more spots. Registration is open until full, or June 11 (whichever comes earlier). Some scholarships are available.
