STUDENT LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
The Student Leadership Program is the foundation of Agape Youth Ministry and its Community Youth Groups' mission to develop future Christian leaders. The program establishes a strong biblical base for students through Dig Deeper Bible School. It then develops strong Christian leadership skills through Student Leadership University Conferences. Taking this knowledge, the student applies these skills through Teen Missions International programs that involves a two week “Boot Camp” and a missions program either nationally or internationally. Finally, Agape Youth Ministry helps place students that want to use this knowledge into internship programs either in youth groups or youth ministries. To support the student in the Student Leadership Program, Agape Youth Ministry and its Community Youth Groups offer financial assistance through its scholarship program.
Purpose: To provide funding to individual students to help support them in the Agape Youth Ministry (AYM) Student Leadership Program or for Christian-based programs such as Christian camps, mission trips, Christian Schools, Christian programs dealing with behavioral issues, or other Christian-based programs that might promote the development of youth.
Funding: Funding shall be done through donations, grants, and other fundraising efforts through Agape Youth Ministries non-profit status.
Qualification: Any student the age of 18 or under that meets the approval of the AYM Board of Directors under guideline set by the Board of Directors. Qualifications may be changed on an individual bases at any time by the AYM Board of Directors.
