Exploring Gifts and Graces Program Gears Up for Another Successful Summer
B-CU E.G.G. Program Explores Leadership and Life-Skills with Teenage Youth
Bethune-Cookman University’s School of Religion will host its second annual Exploring Gifts and Graces: Summer Adventure in Theology and Leadership program (EGG) from July 15-23, 2017 for high school juniors and seniors in the state of Florida. EGG is a nine-day all-expense paid, with the exception of transportation to Daytona Beach for students to receive the opportunity to engage in the arts, music, and drama, all within a Christian environment. Students will stay in the dormitories at Bethune-Cookman University where they will build relationships and bonds with other high school students from all over the state. EGG’s mission is to assist adolescents with the necessary tools to prepare them to live out their calling and serve God in their day to day lives. While at EGG, students will participate in workshops, worship services in the Heyn Memorial Chapel and community service events and partake in leadership roles.
Those who are interested are encouraged to complete an application. Application deadline is May 5, 2017. The application submission includes two references and three short essays regarding the applicant's overall expectations of the program. Online applications can be accessed at http://www.cookman.edu/yti/egg/ under “How to Apply.” Emails will go out by June 2, 2017 regarding the status of application.
