Vision of Restoration Initiative for Culture and Community

Join us as the Austin Stone partners with The Restoration Initiative for Culture and Community as we partner in helping to change individuals, neighborhoods, communities, and cities! 

"We started the RICC because of our passion for the city. Centers of populations are returning to cities from the countryside. When the Apostle Paul was trying to spread the Gospel quickly, he did not go to the countryside, though it probably would have been faster and more beautiful! Instead, he went to the centers of population and impacted culture. We have the same sense of calling and mission: if we change the cities, we can change the world. As you join us, reflect on our mission together with an open heart. Often times mission trips are not so much about you ministering to people, but also about other people ministering to you. The reality is that YOU may be more changed from this Restoration Journey than anything else." - RICC


Financial Notes: 

  • The cost of the trip is based on traveling to and from Austin and includes all trip insurance, transportation, supplies, lodging and meals for the duration of the event. 
  • IRS Guideline: Gifts to the For The Nations Fund are used to support the church's global mission initiatives. You may preference the use of your gift, and we will endeavor to use the funds as you desire, but in order for the contribution to be tax deductible, the church must have ultimate control/discretion as to how the money is spent.
  • If a trip is canceled due to unforeseeable circumstances (including Covid-19), refunds will not be issued in compliance with the IRS guidelines. In some cases, it may be determined to allow raised funds to be applied to future trips.
  • Student Drop Deadline: If a student has to drop out of the trip for any reason after May 1, the balance for each student is $350. This is to cover costs spent on behalf of your student. 


Logistics

  • Travel: The team will be traveling in two 15 passenger vans driven by Austin Stone approved Trip Leaders. 
  • Lodging: The team will be staying in dorm style spaces (bunk beds or twin-sized air mattresses; bringing their own linens & towels) owned by the Restoration Initiative For Culture and Community (RICC).


Covid-19

In planning this year’s short-term trips, For the Nations leadership alongside Students leadership has carefully assessed the on-going pandemic. They will continue to monitor the current situation regarding COVID-19 and will make any necessary changes to ensure the safety of our short-term trip team members.

Meetings

Team Building Training Required

West - Students Room We encourage you to either go to the 9am service at your congregation or come to the 11am at West. This training is for students, but parents are welcome to stay and join in.

Team relationships are important in any context, but they are especially important when going on a short-term trip. Spending every waking moment with the same people can easily lead to friction. In this training, students will get to know one another and set the foundation for what the trip will look like.

If a student is unable to make it, please just notify the trip leaders ahead of time.

During the Ministry Preparations Training, students will have time to brainstorm and begin planning for their trip. Because each trip and ministry students serve is unique, therefore the preparation for the trip will differ from trip to trip.

If a student is unable to make it, please just notify the trip leaders ahead of time.
