Defenders of the Faith
Christ Serve Leadership Training Camp
Adult Christian Woldview Camp
This new event provides teens 13 and older with the opportunity to learn what a Christian Worldview is all about.Defenders of the Faith is a Leadership Camp unique to Christ Serve Academy. Defenders of the Faith reaches out to students aged 13-18 from across the region, training and equipping them to understand and apply their faith in Jesus Christ. Defenders of the Faith goes beyond the 'camp high,' reaching deep into the hearts and minds of students with the truths of Scripture.
Defenders of the Faith will be the best week in the young lives of the students. The training, the experiences, the faculty will be instrumental in solidifying their faith. Students who spend a week at Defenders of the Faith will walk away better equipped to engage culture, stand up for the gospel, and think critically about the world around them. The world is replete with divergent theologies, philosophies, and worldviews, all of which will ultimately be found lacking. Attending Defenders of the Faith allows students to dive deep into scriptural truths allowing them to defend their faith as they move forward in their lives. This program is limited to 50 participants.
Dates and Cost: June 15-20. $600 before April 1, $700 after. Check our website for discounts and scholarship information.
