Team Building & College Classes (3 Months)The Youth Call student will spend the next three months at the Calvary Chapel Conference Center in Twin Peaks, California, living, learning, and bonding together as a team with the rest of the students and the shepherding couple. Their days will consist of accredited Bible College classes, work service on the conference center grounds, homework, chapel, church services, and more.
Classes will consist of a predetermined and set curriculum including a variety of Bible book studies and topical studies taught by instructors under the Calvary Chapel Bible School banner. The students will receive college credits for the courses completed, for their work service, and for chapel. In addition to the accredited courses, there will also be various seminars and training focused specifically on cross-cultural service and living, utilizing specific gifts and talents, interpersonal relationships, and working together as a team.
During afternoons, weekends, and other times as needed, the Youth Call student will participate in a work/service program at the conference center. Duties may include food service, maintenance, janitorial, landscaping, housekeeping, or other needs that may arise on occasion. College credit will be given for this work/service program.
There will also be specially scheduled events and activities away from the conference center. These may include service and ministry at the annual Harvest Crusade, assisting at local family and youth camps, various outreaches, visiting and promoting Youth Call in other churches and more.
All that takes place during these three months is focused upon the preparation of body, soul, and spirit to be able to go out and make disciples in our own culture and beyond into the other cultures around the world, and to learn to serve and minister effectively as an individual and together as a united team under the banner of God’s love.
