Congratulations! You are an adult! You know exactly what you are doing with your life, exactly where you should go next and exactly how to make it all happen! Right!? Perhaps? Not really?
Our Elevate program is designed for young adults who aren't sure where God is leading them or they just need time to learn more about themselves and the awesome God they want to serve. Does that sound like you?
Here are some other questions to ask yourself:
1. Do you want to grow in your relationship with Christ?
2. Do you want to know yourself better?
3. Do you want to build a faith that is solid and mature?
4. Do you want to learn more about serving other people?
5. Do you want to challenge yourself and develop leadership skills that will give you an edge?
6. Do you want to save money as you figure out how God wants you to serve?
If you answered yes, then you might be exactly who we are looking for.
Immerse yourself in the daily service of CLBC! You'll have the opportunity to:
• Teach outdoor education and teambuilding classes for school groups, as well as run program areas for our retreat groups.
• Promote CLBC to youth, families and the community while working beside other staff.
• Learn the value of service from solid full-time missionaries and gain training and certifications that will help in the future.
What does it mean to be a servant leader? How can we become imitators of Christ in leadership roles? How does that translate to being a part of a team?
• Better understand your capabilities and talents and build confidence in how God gifted you for His service.
• Set goals, action steps and timelines for project management. Understand how to work within a team and facilitate success.
• Gain critical thinking skills - how to ask questions, gather research and determine personal positions that you can defend.
Wherever you are in your journey, think about where you could be after almost a full year of studying God's Word and learning how to apply it in your daily thoughts and actions.
• Grow in your understanding of God and His Word. Determine what you believe and learn how to defend your faith.
• Benefit from godly speakers, authors and others who live their life for Christ despite the difficulties in the world.
• Define yourself based on God's Word.
The Elevate program runs for nine months (September - May). It's open to young adults ages 18-22 and provides free tuition, room and board, plus a weekly stipend. To apply, go to the Employment page and fill out an application.
