SLT 2023

Join us in Des Moines for Summer Leadership Training (SLT)! SLT is a discipleship program designed to establish, equip, and envision college students for lifelong obedience to the Great Commission. We are passionate about the glory of God, and therefore passionate about the growth and development of the saints. We focus particularly on giving vision for evangelism, discipleship, and global missions. SLT is designed to leverage the summer season for the Kingdom of God through community, one on one discipleship, theological training, and practical ministry training. 

Our 2023 teaching series will be Behold: A Study of Christ. Without a doubt, Jesus Christ has been the most influential person in history. At the end of our lives, only one thing will matter. What is our understanding of this man? Do we know about him? Do we know him? Do we think rightly of him? The answers to these questions find their foundation from Scripture, and we want to be faithful to dig deeply into who exactly Christ is and why he is worthy of all praise, honor, and glory.

We hope you can join us for a summer you won’t forget!
