Have you started to wonder what your greatest strengths might be? Would you love to really get involved as a leader in your church, your school, or your community? Are you wondering what God might be calling you to do with your life?

At “Marked” we are all on a journey to look for God’s mark on our lives. Join us for a weeklong discovery of your strengths, and be shaped for the future. If you’re interested, you will have the opportunity to move through four years of leadership training and experience a new level of “Marked” each summer. And of course there will be all the typical summer camp happenings like games, swimming, camp fires….and much more! Head to to get an application, or ask your youth leader about how you can get involved! See you this summer!

Youth Leaders...

If you have a student that is ready for a little more and always seems to be ahead of the group, or maybe has a little something special about them, then consider passing along some information about “Marked”. This is an opportunity for the leaders and potential leaders of your youth group to continue their development and discover their strengths. The goals of “Marked” Leadership Institute are below. Please prayerfully consider sending your students to “Marked” this summer! Let’s help them discover their strengths so they might discover the mark of God on their lives.
