It is our hope that we can help foster an environment where upperclassmen can engage in spiritual disciplines, ask questions and learn more about doctrine and basic theological concepts.

You may have read somewhere or heard a sermon at some point about how students are leaving church and faith after high school.  Those statistics have deeply impacted the way we think about programming for our students and it is our hope that students will graduate from our ministry with the tools to navigate the transition into adulthood when it comes to their faith formation.  Form Year is a direct attempt to address those tools and help our students transition well.

We will meet weekly on Wednesday nights throughout the school year, but it will also include spiritual discipline retreats, cross cultural experiences and a capstone trip out West that will allow our students to experience a new part of the country while also merging adventure and hands on spiritual activities and discussions. It is our hope out of these experiences that faith will become tangible and a path will present itself for students to follow and learn how to engage in a life long relationship with the Kingdom of God.

There will be three primary leaders for the Form Year.  I will be working behind the scenes and keeping our crew on schedule, while also being the main force behind our cultural experiences and trips. A wonderful couple by the name of Sam and Ashley Butler will be our group’s primary leaders. They will engage in teaching much of our content as well as pursuing the relational elements that are so important for an experience like this.  We covet your prayers and encouragement as we embark on this journey.

We also ask that you will be praying for the upperclassmen who will be participating in this program.  Pray for those who need to be a part of what we are doing. Also be praying for those student who join our Form Year community that this year will rich with spiritual formation and life long community bonds that help promote strong connections to the Kingdom.

We kick off on Wednesday, August 26th and we look forward to sharing our story throughout the year!

Without Love We Perish,

Wes Trevor
