The cost of the Leadership Project varies from year to year based on rent for the hotel, social events, and other overhead costs. Students will be required to pay rent every week. Wages earned from working during the summer can more than pay for the costs of the project, however, participants may also raise money to help cover expenses. Details on how to raise money will be provided after a student is accepted to the project.
Working a full-time job on the Leadership Project is an invaluable learning experience for students. The jobs are part of the program intended to teach responsibility and dependability as well as how to minister in the workplace. Each student is responsible for finding their own job after arriving at the project.
"As I learned how to study the Bible at project, I began to truly believe in my own heart exactly what it says: that Jesus is better than all things. I remember meeting with God in His Word in the morning, and coming away from it not being able to hold it inside how amazing the gospel is to me. I was so thankful to have older believers at project to teach me more about studying the Word and then from there, to encourage me to share that with a lost and dying world that desperately needs Christ!" - Diane Goudelock, Furman University
"One of the things I was most intimidated by coming in was sharing my faith on the beach on Saturday afternoons. The Lord was so good though and I remember Him truly providing and giving me boldness and words that were not my own. The experiences of sharing my faith on Saturday afternoons and at work helped me grow and prepare me for sharing my faith back on campus and for the rest of my life." - Drew Henley, Furman University
