High School Students Invited to Cost-Free Leadership Conference
Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Culver-Stockton College is hosting a cost-free leadership conference for high school students within the Disciples of Christ Church, Aug. 8-10, 2014. The Christian Youth Leadership Retreat (CYLR) will help high school juniors and seniors develop their leadership skills, through fun and meaningful activities and workshops. All participants will stay in C-SC Residence Halls during the retreat, getting a taste of Disciple-affiliated college life. This event is sponsored by the Country Club Christian Church of Kansas City, Mo.

Culver-Stockton is hosting this conference for DOC youth to learn the importance of getting more involved with the church. Attendants have the opportunity to explore their personal faith, develop leadership capabilities and learn what is needed in the church for it to continue its tradition of “ministry of impact” in the nation and world.

During the retreat, the youth will spend time in community worship, in-depth discussions, practical leadership workshops and other fun events led by Culver-Stockton Disciples students, under the direction of the College’s Chaplain, Amanda Sorenson. Examples of workshops to be hosted during the retreat include “Keeping the Faith through High School and Beyond,” “Cyberfaith,” and “You Don’t Have to Have a Title to be a Leader.” Recent C-SC alumni who have chosen ministry-related careers will be participating in discussion and workshops.

Space is limited and the priority application deadline is July 31, 2014. For more information, contact the Office of Admission at 800-537-1883 or
