Use your summer to invest in God's Kingdom.
Imagine seven weeks of your summer growing in your relationship with God, building meaningful relationships, learning how to live the life God is calling you to and fulfilling His purposes for your life! You can do this, and even make some money while doing it. But most of all, you'll learn how to point to Jesus and His legacy- what He left behind. Not houses, children, or money. He left us His Word, and He left a few hundred disciples. We'll grow as His disciples by digging into His Word, praying about it, discussing it, teaching it, and we'll all be transformed by it. In this way the Discipleship Legacy Project will prepare us to work and live for the things that really matter 100 years from now and even one million years from now! What legacy will you leave behind? Also, all our work projects will be improving the Three Trails Ranch so that it is a useful place in building God's Kingdom for many years to come.
The Discipleship Legacy Project is a seven week long summer project designed to help college students grow in Great Commission training, leadership development, outdoor adventure, and life skills.
This is going to be an awesome summer of growth in community at Three Trails Ranch.
WHAT WILL WE DO?
* Work and live at Three Trails Ranch. Students will work for approximately 30 hours per week. The work we do will be to improve the Ranch, and the Ranch exists to provide Great Commission Training to hundreds of Christians each year. There will be other groups that will be using the Ranch while we are running our project. They will be using different living facilities. Its a big place.
* Daily team time getting into God's Word and musical worship
* Weekly men's and women's times
* Weekly one on one discipleship with students paired with staff
* Weekly leadership training
* Evangelistic outreaches in town
* Outdoor adventures such as back packing, swimming, fishing, bonfires, and camping
* Community meals
* Weekly day off to have fun in town or in the mountains
By the end of the summer you will have grown a ton with God and some great friends.
WHAT KINDS OF WORK WILL WE DO?
* Landscaping and maintenance on the Three Trails Ranch in order to preserve and increase the effectiveness of the Three Trails Ranch for generations to come. This will likely include noxious weed control, fence installation and repair, rock wall repair, debris removal, painting, cleaning, and more.
* Some student workers may help babysit staff kids.
* Daily shared chores such as helping cook and clean for the project. Shared chores will not be paid, but there is a chance that we may need a dedicated helper to take some work hours in the kitchen.
WHAT IS THERE TO DO AROUND THE RANCH?
* Swimming in the pond including a rope swing and boats (paddle board, kayak and canoe).
* Pool table and foosball table
* Read and enjoy the library
* Sit on the porch and enjoy the beauty
