An adventure in leadership and faith formation for high school students

June 30–July 29, 2021

Wilderness adventures, theology and ministry intertwine for the month of Compass. Over the course of four weeks, you’ll join high school students from around the globe to backpack through the Adirondack Mountains of New York, study theology under renowned professors at Gordon College and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and travel to Iceland to serve in a cross-cultural context. These three back-to-back expeditions will challenge and encourage you as a leader and follower of Christ.
