The need ranges from conversational beginner English facilitator to advance English composition. School credit is available for qualified students through partnership with Multnomah University.

Do I need a passport to come on this trip?

Yes, to travel outside of the United States, you must have a passport to enter into the Eurpean Union and to safely re-enter the United States upon your return. If you don't already have a passport, it could take time. Please allow extra time for the State Department to process your application.

What happens if I can not make all the trainings, can I still go?

Italy is a tricky place. Their culture is complex. They do not operate the same way as we do in the States. That is why we train. We ask that everyone commit to the best of their ability to make all the trainings. We ask you to commit to a minimum of three (3) trainings. This may seem extreme (and it is), but it really helps us to come together as a team before we leave the States. If you are unable to make all the trainings, we will work with you to make sure you are up-to-speed before you take off. If you do not live around the Portland, OR area, we ask that you use Skype or FaceTime to virtually join us.

When does all of my money need to be paid? Can I fundraise?

All your money must be deposited into your account at Kingdom Ministries no later than one week before your departure date. But, to ensure reservatios are secure for our team, the sooner the better.

Do I need to speak Italian to come on this trip?

No! You do not need to know any Italian to go on this trip. We will be giving the team a crash course in Italian. Our hope is that everyone will be able to say 10 phrases before they leave!

Traveling with the intention to love and serve others has lead to the most treasured experiences of my life! I highly encourage everyone to go on a trip like this. :)

There is nothing more exciting than to serve a group of people who speak a different language, in a different culture, and who grew up miles from where you grew up. God is using this ministry in powerful ways. Don't miss out. You must come on this trip!
