"(Daraja retreat) is a unique space to listen and tell your story to an audience that hears and relates.""
- Grace Bible College TCK
The Daraja retreat is one of my favorite weekends of every semester because we’re taken away from the busyness of life and are given time to be in community with people who have similar experiences (and different multicultural experiences!). As well as a time to be silent without distractions."
- Calvin College TCK
I love these retreats because it is a fruitful time of being able to reflect, share, learn and be vulnerable with others. This retreat was a breath of fresh air and helped me better understand myself, others, God and where I am going."
- Hope College TCK
