We are excited that your son or daughter is interested in attending one of our Leadership Training programs! We are honored to serve and train students at these summer programs. Thank you for taking the time to get informed and educated on our ministry and our LT programs.
About Collegiate Church Network
The LT program is sponsored by the Collegiate Church Network. Collegiate has an association of more than 20 churches in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Texas, Florida, California, and Virginia. These churches share a common vision to plant and grow collegiate churches devoted to the Great Commission.
“We plant churches on college campuses that are custom-built for college students; helping them find salvation in Jesus and discover the power of His church. It is our hope that they will become lifelong followers involved in their local churches wherever they go, well after they graduate.” - Collegiate Church Network website
The churches are staffed with pastors and campus ministers who all about caring for the spiritual needs of students in their college experience.
This is where Leadership Training comes in.
About Leadership Training
Leadership Training (LT) is Collegiate’s summer training program for college students. Since 1980, the LT experience has been a turning point in the lives of thousands of students.
LT is a unique summer experience designed to inspire students to become leaders for Christ. It is a training ground designed to help each student grow in their relationship with God, forge healthy relationships with others, develop personal and spiritual maturity, gain practical Biblical instruction, enhance life skills, and make an impact in their community.
We support you as a parent, and truly desire that you be informed about LT programs and what they involve. In fact, we require each applicant to obtain their parent’s written advice/permission before they can be accepted into one of the programs. Your comments are essential in our consideration of your son or daughter’s acceptance into LT.
You can learn more about the LT program here on our site. Specifically, you may wish to visit the Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) pages and the Financial Information pages for the location your son or daughter wants to participate in.
The application and registration system for LT is administered by Great Commission Ministries, a Collegiate Church Network ministry partner in Orlando, FL. GCM’s website will guide your student and you through the application and recommendation process, and securely process payments for the program. GCM is also a mission agency for many of the support-based campus missionaries with the Collegiate Church Network who lead the LT programs.
