     2023 Emerge Dates Coming Soon

    at Deer Valley Meadows, Alix


    EMERGE is a Mentorship initiative for High School Students throughout our network.
    EMERGE is for students that show leadership potential and who take their walk with God seriously.
    Our Youth Task Force developed this initiative several years ago and determined 3 values for Emerge.
    1. To foster strong connections throughout our network and encourage young leaders. Students are required to seek out volunteer opportunities in their local church.
    2. To provide opportunities for students to learn and grow in their leadership potential. Each year we facilitate the EMERGE retreat at Deer Valley Meadows Camp.
    3. To see each student have an opportunity for discipleship by an adult mentor in their community. Each year EMERGE starts with a weekend retreat (This year it will be in April and November, we cover the costs once you arrive at DVM).
    Learning opportunities of EMERGE are:
    Spiritual Gifts, Ministry style, Personality style, Spiritual disciplines, devotional preparation/leadership, meal prep, worship preparation/leadership, Service projects and more.  Leadership at CCOGM events.

    Each First Year student must fill out an application form complete with a pastoral reference as well as completing the Retreat registration the first year of participating in Emerge.
