DOWNLOAD is a common term used to describe retrieving information or content from an online source. In this case, Download is our mentoring ministry emphasis that focuses on students downloading information & life experience from a trusted adult who is investing in them.
Download is the name of our main Mentoring program and is divided into two main tracks.
One-on-One is the name of our new individual mentoring program that is in development. Students who are serious about their faith and are committed to growing & serving can request to meet one-on-one with a Life Group Leader or other trained adult in the church body. Students can choose to participate in 3 main tracks and meet weekly with a mentor. Each track is 8 weeks long and is designed to help 3 types of students: new & young believers in Christ, students who want to start or lead a ministry on their school campus, and students who are considering full-time Christian ministry as a career.
*Track 1: Foundations- New Believers
*Track 2: Lighthouse- Campus Ministry Development
*Track 3: Satellite- Career Ministry Development
Internships are available for a more formal type of mentoring. College students seeking course credit can apply for a summer internship in youth ministry. This 3 month paid program is designed to give future youth leaders a wide variety of hands-on youth ministry experience. It is set up to partner with a Christian University and is customized to fit the needs & talents of the person.
