Wondering what SHIFT is about? SHIFT is a High School Leadership Development program. The goal of this program is to use the ministry of Camp Ghormley to help build strong leaders. We believe this will not only enhance our camping ministries, but ultimately will create stronger leaders and followers of Jesus in the schools, churches and homes of the students who participate in this program. Ultimately we seek to grow Christ's kingdom, and SHIFT is a new avenue of ministry to accomplish that.
A student in this program will fill one of a number of crucial roles in the operation of our summer camp programs, will take part in daily Bible/leadership studies designed to stretch your faith, will be mentored by one of our college staff and your SHIFT supervisor and will also be involved in ministering directly to the campers of Ghormley. That's just a brief summary of all the things you'll experience!
Being in this program is hard work, but we believe that three weeks in this program will stretch you in new ways that benefit you not only now, but could have a lasting impact on your life!
