Huntingdon College invites pastors and youth ministers who serve United Methodist churches in the Alabama-West Florida and North Alabama Conferences of The United Methodist Church to sponsor high school juniors and/or seniors to participate in the Huntingdon Leadership Academy (HLA), June 22 - 24, 2016.
WHO SHOULD COME?
High school juniors and seniors who have the gifts and graces for ministry of any sort—whether as deacons or elders, missionaries, music ministers, children’s or youth pastors, worship leaders, or lay leaders, among the many ways to minister —are welcome at this retreat.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE ACADEMY?
The purpose of the Huntingdon Leadership Academy is to assist student leaders as they discern God’s call for who they should be and what they should do with their lives.
WHO IS RUNNING THE ACADEMY?
This three-day retreat is coordinated by the Huntingdon College Office of the Chaplain and executed by Huntingdon Department of Religion faculty, area United Methodist clergy, Huntingdon student volunteers, and the College Chaplain.
The leadership skills necessary for ministry are transferable to leadership in any area. Every participant will benefit from what he or she learns during this three-day academy. Each student whose call to ministry is further enlightened, informed, and shaped will benefit from early guidance, and the Church will
benefit from the leadership these young leaders will be encouraged to give.
WHAT IS THE COST?
The cost is $75 per student, which includes on-campus housing, meals, and fellowship activities.
WHAT TYPES OF ACTIVITIES OR SESSIONS WILL BE INVOLVED?
Fellowship, worship, prayer, discussion, instruction, and time to relax and to have fun are built into the HLA schedule.
