We want you and the team that you are a part of to experience the entire weekend as a group. Each Rise on the Road trip is designed to have one day built on the day before, so it is expected that you will arrive the evening that the Rise on the Road begins and stay until it is fully completed. Work groups are set at a certain size depending on the work that needs to be done and if someone is missing it makes more work for the others in the group. If you feel you will not be able to fulfill this commitment please notify us as soon as possible.

RISE Ministries will issue a full refund of your registration fee if a cancellation request is made more than 90 days prior to the Rise on the Road event. 
RISE Ministries will issue a refund equal to half of your registration fee if cancellation request is made 60-90 days before the ROTR event. 
There will be no refund for a cancellation request within 60 days prior to the ROTR event.
* $75 deposit is nonrefundable.
