live a Christ-centered summer
The Discipleship Intensive is a thirteen-week program, designed to help young adults take their faith to the next level, through living in Christ-centered community, experiencing new things, serving others, being immersed in God’s creation and in bible studies and classes with others in the program all summer long.
As a part of this unique program, participants also get to explore six different national parks throughout the summer, spend multiple weeks in mission, meet new people, plan and coordinate weekly outreach events, and experience God in new and exciting ways.

where you'll live for the summer
Raspberry Hill Farm - Sullivan, WI
When not on a trip, participants live together in Christ-centered community on a 40-acre plot of land in rural Wisconsin. In addition to being home to our participants each summer, this is also where we host our weekly outreach events, and even where our larger events are held too!
This 40-acre plot of land 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.
