Wycliffe to Host Anglican Youth Program Over March Break
Monday January 30th, 2012
In March, Wycliffe College will host young Anglicans from across Ontario who are taking part in a new leadership program called Arise.
The program will see 15 teenagers in grades 11 and 12 stay at the Wycliffe College during March Break. They will take part in college life, including meeting the professors and eating with the students, taking part in worship services, and learning community- and team-building skills. They will also visit some mission projects in the city.
Although the program will involve spiritual formation and discernment, it’s not just for teens who feel called to ordained ministry. The program will encourage and equip the youths to be active in their home parishes.
The director of the program is Gayle Doornbos, a PhD student at Wycliffe College who has led a similar program at Calvin College in the United States. In addition to Wycliffe, the program is supported by a number of Anglican churches, including St. Paul’s. The program has received a grant from the Anglican Foundation.
Spots are still open for Arise. If you know an Anglican in grades 11 or 12 who might be interested, have them email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Wycliffe College at 416-946-3535.
