SERVICE LEARNING GAP EXPERIENCES
Become a part of Discovery House a service based gap experience for participants ages 18-24. Go on an adventure of discovery for a summer, semester or year. Through service, community and reflection discover your authentic self, the joy of helping others, the perspective of those different than you and lifelong friendships.
Live simply, discover authentic relationships and distinguish between needs and want being part of an intentionally Christian and diverse Community.
Each week will be dedicated to processing and synthesizing the experience so we can grow in Faith. We will discover what Jesus says about caring for the poor, the hungry, thirsty, imprisoned, immigrant, sick. We will discover the best ways to advocate for justice.
Ultimately we will discover how to Love: how to love our selves, our neighbor and our God!
