Leadership Development

What does it mean to be an authentic leader, a leader with integrity?

The pursuit of leadership is a journey often hindered by challenging obstacles and times of self doubt. It is a journey of the heart, mind and spirit; a path that few choose to take. Do not be fooled. Leadership is a difficult calling.

The Leadership Pursuits program places participants in a tremendously dynamic environment; one that can change rapidly as many tests of character are encountered daily. Adventure activities are utilized as both the tool and laboratory to explore and discover the deeper truths about what it means to be an effective and godly leader. Combined with study and reflection, the activities become the tutor. The participant becomes the apprentice.

Program leaders are gifted in their abilities to facilitate learning and nurture the discovery and development of participants’ hidden strengths. They are also able to surface weaknesses and limitations. Program staff provides insight and accountability throughout the program. They are highly trained outdoor professionals who have many years of experience in managing all the risks associated with adventure-based activities.

While all of our trips have aspects of leadership development, Stonewater Ranch offers trips and programs that are designed specifically for students who would like to be challenged as they take the next steps towards becoming strong leaders.
