You are not alone. Come share the journey.

Two Countries One World (TCOW) is a United Church service and learning initiative, challenging and changing the lives of youth. Parkminster is very pleased to support youth from our congregation to participate in these life-changing experiences.

Every two years over the March Break, a trip is planned, with day-long learning workshops throughout the preceding year to help prepare participants. TCOW was developed as a continuation to the growth and development of faith for youth after confirmation and as a way to encourage their global citizenship.

TCOW (Two Countries One World) is excited to announce the return of our program for 2023-2024. As we prepare for our return to Colombia in March 2024, we are calling out for fresh ideas and new committee members. TCOW is a volunteer-based committee where members can contribute as much as they like, and decisions are made by consensus. Click here for more details
