Our mission at Elevate is to train the next generation of leaders to advance the kingdom of God! Elevate is an immersion discipleship program designed to empower and instruct young adults who are passionate about following Jesus and pursuing lives of spiritual growth and ministry. In our program, students are trained in three ways:

1. hands on training 2. academic studies 3. personal discipleship.

Who is the Elevate Program for?
Three types of 18 to 24 year olds:
Those called to FT ministry and desire to commit to 2 3 years of training & discipleship
Those who know they are not called to FT ministry as a career, but desire to enroll in 12 years of discipleship to grow in their faith
Those who are unsure at this time, but desire to enroll in 1 2 years of discipleship, hoping to find direction for what God has for their lives

How does the Elevate Program work?
