Training sessions will cover everything from technical skills/abilities to tactical/mental understanding of the game, as well as scrimmages to incorporate game scenarios and allow opportunities for players to be creative and implement what we have worked on in training throughout the day.

Student Leadership University (SLU)

Our student ministry desires to invest and equip the student leaders within our ministry, and we believe that Student Leadership University offers a world class program that teaches Christian leadership as well as a strong biblical worldview. Student Leadership University’s mission is to develop and equip student leaders to think, dream, and lead. SLU strives to instill future tense thinking; character-driven decision making; ownership of biblical values; and a commitment to influence through service. SLU believes that God has called us to prepare the next generation to Think, Dream, and Lead through a challenging series of leadership training processes that equip them to have a Renaissance Mind, The Heart of a Patriot, The Soul of a Saint, The Discipline of a Champion and the Influence of a Leader. They accomplish this vision through leadership adventures that are marketed through significant relationships across multiple denominational lines, delivered with excellence, and lead to a sustainable, long-term relationship.
