DISCIPLESHIP INTENSIVE
live a Christ-centered summer

The Discipleship Intensive is a 12 week program, designed to help young adults take their faith to the next level, through living in Christ-centered community. Participants will experience many life firsts while serving others, and while being immersed in God’s creation.

 

As a part of this unique program, participants also get to explore six different national parks throughout the summer, spending multiple weeks in mission, sharing the Gospel, meeting new people, planning and coordinating weekly outreach events, and experiencing God in new and exciting ways.

Where You'll Live

for the Summer

When not on a trip, participants live together in Christ-centered community on a 40-acre plot of land in rural Southeast Wisconsin. In addition to being home to our participants each summer, this is also where we host our weekly outreach events, and even where some of our larger events are held too! 

This beautiful farm has open fields, woods, a pond, and walking trails throughout, giving participants the perfect place to listen to God's voice and spend their prayer times. 

Life at the farm means preparing for discipleship classes and bible studies, taking personal time away with God, preparing and sharing meals with one another, discussing various topics, gardening together, and helping plan weekly outreach and worship events for other young adults in the area.
