In my SLA experience, I hoped to get out a stronger relationship with Christ, see if I really want to work at camp, and meet new friends. The program exceeded my expectations. I am closer to the Lord than ever before, I will definitely apply to work at FUGE, and I met lifelong friends.

SLA was the first place I truly understood what being a disciple of Christ meant. Over the two weeks I was shaped into a leader with a heart for growing the kingdom of God and learned what it truly means to die every day for Christ. SLA taught me to be a fully committed leader focused on God’s will for my life and discipling others.

I learned a lot within my first week as an SLA from how to lean on the people around me to the importance of intentionality in every relationship to what authentic community looks like. When I was paired with my staffer during week two of the program I was able to see what being a servant leader looked like in a very practical way. I was able to put what I learned in week one to action in week two. The way I live is forever different because of my time at SLA.
