Each summer, Campus Outreach Greenville sponsors a Leadership Project (LP) for students from Clemson University, Furman University, Presbyterian College, Southern Weslyan University, Western Carolina University, and Wofford College. This summer, Campus Outreach Lynchburg is joining the LP as well, with students from Virgina Tech, Radford University, Randolph College, Lynchburg College, and Liberty University. Simply put, the Leadership Project is an opportunity to live, play, work, and learn with other college students for eight weeks.
Each student works a full-time job during the day and participates in bible studies, discipleship groups, evangelistic outreaches, ministry training, and Sunday worship at local churches. During the week, there is also plenty of fellowship, fun, and other social activities.
This demanding, yet challenging schedule creates a perfect environment for students to grow in their relationship with Christ and to develop ministry skills and leadership qualities. For a better idea of what a typical weekly schedule at Leadership Project looks like, click here.
This year’s project is taking place from May 30th to July 29th, 2013, with a mandatory retreat April 13-14. Leadership Project costs $1700 for the entire summer, covering housing, a project-wide meal each week, weekly project socials, and LP materials. It does not cover other meals or transportation. We encourage students to raise as much of this cost as possible from individual supporters and churches.
Parent’s Weekend, June 21-23
One aspect of the Leadership Project’s success comes from requiring students to remain on the project. We know that you love your students and want to be with them as well this summer, so even though your student can’t come see you, you can definitely come and see them. Our Parent’s Weekend activities are designed to give you a taste of what your student is learning and experiencing at the LP as well as for you to meet the Campus Outreach Greenville staff leading the project. We hope you will consider attending this summer!
In an effort to offer a broad church experience, students will rotate between 3 different churches throughout the summer: Cornerstone Baptist Church, Trinity Episcopal Church, and Faith Presbyterian Church. Each church represents a different denominational perspective with a biblical approach to ministry as well as years of strong relationship with Campus Outreach summer projects. Our desire in this is to expose students to a different church experience than they may be accustomed to without compromising the authority of God’s Word.
