Be a part of Discover!
Discover is sponsored by a grant from the Lilly Endowment and so is FREE for attendees. However, there is a $25 registration fee to hold your spot. Please use our alternative registration form if the fee would be a hardship for your family.
Discover is a program that challenges formative middle and high school youth with careful theological and moral reflection prior to college life. In the midst of theological reflection and activity, students will have the opportunity to:
discover God in new ways, especially as incarnational and interactive;
discover who they are as children of God;
discover how to live out their faith;
and discover what they are called to do vocationally.
Through a week-long session at Black Lake Retreat Center in Asheboro, participants will:
explore some of life's most important questions
grow in faith and sense of calling as we explore each person's sacred worth as a child of God.
learn and engage theological concepts alongside excellent college and graduate level faculty
participate in exciting field trips to explore creation, serve others, and grow in knowledge and faith
challenge themselves in activities such as water sports and zip lining
get to know college-aged Teaching Fellows who will lead them through the week's programming
grow in community with other participants
There is no cost for the student to attend Discover. Participants are simply responsible for transportation to and from Black Lake Retreat Center. For more details please see our brochure below and feel free to contact us.
