Created for Purpose is an open enrollment program designed specifically to enrich local churches by serving individuals in local churches. We serve both students and adult mentors through this program. The Design High school students, ages 14-17, will join us for a two week wilderness and service program in the rugged and beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. We will backpack, rock climb, and participate in local missions work. More importantly, we will explore what it means to lead out of your identity as a follower of Jesus Christ. Upon completion of their program, students will return to their home churches primed and ready to be mentored by a sponsoring adult mentor for one year. The Mentor Students will have to be sponsored by their mentor, an adult from the student's home church. We aren't looking for the mentoring rock stars (though we aren't excluding them either). One objective of this program is to give tools to new mentors that equip them to be able to, going forward, invest in students with confidence and effectiveness.
