Imagine a summer marked by a deeper love for God, His Word and His people. Imagine being on a team of like-minded students who are also passionate about growing with Jesus. Imagine God using you to change eternity in the lives of people around you. Sound good?

Come make that a reality as Navigator students across California, Arizona, Hawaii and Utah head to the YMCA in Estes Park, CO for the summer. 

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.The Sunland's regional STP is in Estes Park at the YMCA of the Rockies. 

Students will 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 training and groups, ministry training, fellowship, and other activities throughout the week.

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.
