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 quarter students head to the YMCA in Estes Park for the summer and semester students build teams based on where they're living across Arizona, Los Angeles and San Diego. 

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.

Quarter 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 groups, ministry training, fellowship, and other activities during the week.

Semester students:
Will be in teams based on geography across Arizona and Southern California. Students will have opportunities to pursue internships, work, summer school... while also being a part of a committed team that will spend intentional time doing in-depth Bible studies, receive top-notch training in pursuing God and sharing your faith with others, and being discipled weekly by their team leader. Semester students will have a Launch Retreat in Arizona in June and a Closing Retreat in California at the end of July.  

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.
