Hinton YouthLead Academy

August 19, 2020

Hinton Rural Life Center is hosting Hinton YouthLead Academy, Dec 4-6, 2020. The Academy is a weekend leadership training event for United Methodist high school youth who stand out as leaders in their churches, schools, and/or communities. They have a natural ability to organize and influence others. The Academy will help them explore their spiritual gifts and "wiring" for ministry, as well as offer practical workshops on effective writing and presentation. Plus devotions, worship, and relaxing time at our scenic lakeside/mountain setting.

A unique feature of this training event is that it's limited to 20 students, and each student is accompanied by a mentor from his/her church. Developing a mentoring relationship with a caring adult from one's church will offer ongoing support, encouragement, and connection for each student leader.

BONUS: We can offer this event for only $30/person -- includes lodging, meals, leadership, supplies -- due to generous funding from the Royce and Jane Reynolds Ministry Fund. 

Spots are limited; applications are due Sept 30. A detailed flyer and an application are linked at www.hintoncenter.org/training

*COVID-19 protocols are in place to ensure the safety of guests, staff, and participants.
