  • Community: During the Ministry Leadership Camp, student will participate in a small group. Not only is this a good way to build knowledge, but it is also a great environment for building community. Students will get to know and learn from other students exploring the possibility of ministry.
  • Experiences: Students will participate in some active learning experiences to help reinforce principles that we are learning. We will also have the opportunity to learn from current ministers in the area as they share about their ministry experiences.
