Life & Leadership Training

Life & Leadership Training

The 6 week Life & Leadership Training (LLT) program is for students that are seeking Christ, yearning for leadership, desiring to serve and experience wilderness based activities. The program runs from July 5 – August 16 and is aimed at students aged 16-19. Some of the adventures that students may experience are: Inflatable Kayaking, Whitewater Rafting, Rock Climbing, Horseback Riding, Backpacking, Hiking, Challenge Course, and Mountaineering. Each of the LLT students will be working shoulder to shoulder with our permanent staff, summer staff and volunteers. They will be given chances to serve and lead alongside us as we participate in ministry together.

This is a HIGHLY relational and discipleship based program. The students will be mentored one-on-one and as a group throughout their time with us. There will also be daily worship/devotion scheduled and deep discussions about faith that our staff will craft based on the students needs.

Our heart is to see each student come away from these 6 weeks with a deeper relationship with God, vision for their future, and confidence in their leadership!
