Why Are You Starting This?
I have been asked many times in the last few weeks what is ‘Cape Breton Discipleship Adventure School,’ and why are you doing this? Over the next few weeks we will be releasing several more announcements of what will be happening, but for a moment let me tell you about some of the reasons why.
One of the tag lines for our Undercurrent Youth Centres has been, ’We want to give every child, every opportunity to succeed.’ This is also one of big reasons why we are starting this new adventure. Over the past few years we have talked, planned, met with other school leaders, and have come up with something that will help many young adults reach their potential.
This will be a discipleship school, with many of the components of other great schools, however, we are going to offer something that is very unique. We want to make this adventure available to any young adults, regardless of financial limitations, so they can study in Cape Breton, then work in Cape Breton (or wherever they feel called) without student debt.
We run a unique ministry of starting churches, running youth centres, and serving our community. There is no better place to experience church planting and youth ministry than right here in Cape Breton. This has also giving us the ability to accept up to 8 students starting in September, 2017, who will have the opportunity to be part of the adventure school, and also be paid for program hours at our Centres. Each student will have the opportunity, if they choose, to make enough money to cover their entire program.
The students will be part of an amazing program, receive instruction from YFC Staff, take 2 courses (Minimum) from Master’s College, be part of ministry trips in the Maritimes and Ontario, be part of the Canadian Youth Workers conference, and so much more. Also, students will have to opportunity to purse a heavier course load, if they choose.
We recognize that this may not be for everyone. However, we want to invest in our youth and young adults, and give them every opportunity to have an amazing experience, right here in Cape Breton.
