Cost and Payment Schedule

The total cost for your group is $295 per person. This covers food, lodging, staffing, all paint-related supplies, and the award-winning* Joe Rush Center t-shirt for every member of your group. Also, for every six students that attend, one adult may attend at no charge.

Your deposit of $250 will hold your date (subject to its availability) and will be applied toward the total cost. One-half of your remaining balance is due six weeks prior to your arrival. Your final payment based on the actual number of persons attending will be due when you arrive.

Remember: you may be staying with other groups during your mission week.


Options for your group!

In addition to the program and service options indicated on the registration form, your group might enjoy other local activities for an afternoon away or a night out. We can make suggestions (for example, Splash Adventure water park and amusement park, Birmingham Barons baseball in their award-winning ballpark, and more).

Your dates are reserved when the deposit is received.

A deposit check of $250 may be made out to “Urban Ministry” and mailed to

We also accept credit card payment via Paypal. A charge of $7.50 is added to cover the credit card surcharge that Paypal charges. You may indicate on the registration form if you would like for us to email you an invoice with a link for paying via Paypal. (It is okay to change your mind later and pay by check instead.)

*By “award-winning,” we mean that one youth director called the shirts “super cute.” (Click to return.)
