The Purpose of Living the Questions

We provide motivated students going into 10th, 11th, and 12th grade the time, place, and tools to think theologically and discern God’s calling on their lives. This 10-month leadership experience begins with a 7-day summer program (July 7 - 13, 2019) at Bethel University and is followed by regular meetings with a mentor.

Our Goals for Students

  • To develop the skills to think theologically by exploring relevant questions raised by important topics such as justice, science, and media
  • To gain understanding and appreciation for how God’s presence connects with human needs through service learning
  • To engage in reflective discussion to better understand one’s gifts and explore calling

The 2019 Theme: MEDIA & FAITH

The theme of MEDIA & FAITH provides an intentional experience for students to discuss, reflect, and learn tools to navigate difficult questions like:

  • Does media help or hurt us and our faith?
  • How do we tell what's true and what's false in media?
  • How can we use media to represent God's truth in the world?
