Northwestern College to host faith camp for high school students
Thursday, January 19, 2017
High school students are invited to participate in Living Your Faith (LYF), a one-week campus experience hosted by Northwestern College June 25–30.
The faith and service “training camp” is for students entering their sophomore, junior or senior years. “It’s for teens who take their faith seriously and want to spend a week with others who feel the same, exploring questions about God and the Bible,” said LYF director Daniel Den Boer. “Living Your Faith is also a good fit for high schoolers who are thinking of studying religion or who are interested in ministry and missions—either as a career or as something they like to participate in as volunteers,” he added.
LYF campers will spend time studying the Bible and theological ideas with Northwestern religion professors and students each morning, and spend afternoons engaged in service and volunteerism in the region surrounding the college. They’ll also enjoy community entertainment and excursions in the evenings and get a taste of campus life while living in a Northwestern residence hall.
Living Your Faith costs $150 for students who register by March 1 and $200 to register after March 1. The fee covers all LYF expenses, including room, board, field trips, and access to campus facilities and amenities. Living Your Faith is funded by a grant from the Lilly Endowment. The Lilly Endowment funds initiatives aimed at giving young people opportunities to meaningfully engage their faith. Learn more about Living Your Faith and register at lyf.nwciowa.edu.
