Students are invited and encouraged to experience The FAMiLY LEADER’s 1st Annual Leadership Youth Academy. The FAMiLY LEADER recognizes there is a need for urgency in reaching youth, for the purpose of instilling a solid biblical foundation with real world application, and thus the creation of the first annual Leadership Youth Academy.
The purpose of The Leadership Youth Academy is to:
• Equip students with concrete tools and critical thinking skills for underscoring their biblical worldview (why they believe what they believe), and applying this to all areas of life including marriage, dating, media, college, sports, entertainment, social media, politics, civic involvement, etc.
• Help students be prepared for a world that is increasingly hostile to their Christian faith and biblical worldview.
• Provide encouragement to students to stand strong for their values and beliefs among their peers.
The Leadership Youth Academy will include keynote speakers Dr. David Noebel from Summit Ministries in Colorado and Allison Howard from Concerned Women for America in Washington D.C., Bob Vander Plaats from The FAMiLY LEADER. Local testimonies, a worldview panel, and worldview lessons are also planned for the day.
Space is limited and will fill up quickly, so we encourage students to register as soon as possible.
