Imagine spending a whole summer in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado with students who want to grow in their relationships with God. You'll live, work, and have fun together all summer long and develop friendships that will last a lifetime.

Would you prayerfully consider joining us at the YMCA in Estes this summer as we seek to know God and live according to His Word?

What is a STP?

Each summer, The Navigators® Collegiate Ministries provide multiple intensive summer growth initiatives called Summer Training Programs (STPs) in different regions of the country. Students live, work, have fun, and learn with other college students for eight weeks at the YMCA in Estes Park, CO.

 

​Each student works a full time job at the YMCA during the day and participates in Bible studies, evangelistic outreaches, discipleship groups, ministry training, fellowship, and other activities during the week.

 

These opportunities for fellowship, mentoring, guided experiences, and time in the Word create an ideal environment for students to grow in their relationship with Christ as well as develop ministry skills and leadership qualities. Summer Training Programs are operated and overseen by experienced full-time Navigator Staff.

5 Reasons Why You Should Consider STP

1. Growth

Learn how to meet with Jesus through His Word and grow through: Bible studies, evangelistic outreaches, discipleship groups, ministry training, fellowship, and other activities designed to challenge and encourage students in all areas of their faith.  

 

2. Community

Imagine spending a whole summer with other college students who want to grow in their relationships with God. You'll live, work, and have fun together all summer long and develop friendships that will last a lifetime.

 

3. Experience

Students work full-time jobs at the YMCA making a real paycheck. Not only do students gain very unique job experiences, but they also gain invaluable relational skills. Working alongside people different from you, asking good questions, and sparking meaningful conversations are skills that are necessary to succeed in any workplace and PACS offers the opportunity to grow in all three!

 

4. Fun

Between large group functions and your days off, you will have a blast! You won't believe not only how much you're learning and growing, but how much fun you're having at the same time.

5. Summer

A two-month window of time dedicated to time with the Lord, rest, and relationships with like-minded people may never happen again after you graduate. Take advantage of this opportunity while you can.
