Remember when you came to Corban Experience?

Calling all hearts for hospitality and service!
We will soon be infiltrated by a flock of young students, coming from exotic locations near and far, visiting our beautiful state of Oregon in November to experience life on campus. This is where YOU have the opportunity to open your “home”, share your journey and potentially inspire one (or all!) of these high school students to a path of Christ based education here at Corban. Go check out page 8 in this week’s Hilltop for some insightful and entertaining reasons why you should host. All the nitty-gritty details will be coming soon, but if you are so excited and you are busting with questions, feel free to email me, Michelle!
