God's Boot Camp

More Than Just a Learning Experience

Welcome to God's Boot Camp - the first of its kind - a 24-hour high octane boot/training camp for 30 individuals (between 18 and 30 years of age) who have questions about what the Seventh-day Adventist faith community stands for and who are open to explore for the answers. You may be an Adventist in name, or you may not be. But you’re willing to critically examine the top five teachings of Scripture. Some of the brightest minds on campus have agreed to teach these top five truths.

During these 24 hours (Friday September 15, 8:00 PM through Saturday September 16, 8:00 PM) you will meet at a comfortable off-site lodge. Interspersed through the 24 hours the five presenters will each present for one hour followed by an hour of Q&A with the boot camp participants.

There will be health/wellness breaks - and yes, there will be time for sleep and three enjoyable meals. Please fill out the application below. You will be notified of your selection, after which your $25 entry fee will be due (scholarships are available).

More than just a learning experience, you will enjoy 24 hours with other young minds who are seeking the same answers you are. So come with an open mind—it will be filled.
