Summer Training Program

What is an STP?

Each summer The Navigators Collegiate Ministries provide multiple intensive summer growth initiatives called Summer Training Programs (STPs) in different regions of the country. 

Students will live, work, have fun, and grow with other college students during this eight week summer intensive at the YMCA in Estes Park, CO. Each student will live on property, work 40 hours a week (Team Leaders 20 hours a week), and participate in bible studies, evangelistic opportunities, discipleship groups, leadership training, and fellowship.

5 Reasons Why You Should Consider STP

"Trust God that He’s going to work in you through it, and He will provide more for you through this STP than you can ever imagine!" (Freshman, 2022).

1. Growth

Learn how to meet regularly with Jesus through His Word, and grow though bible studies, evangelistic outreach, discipleship groups, and quality speakers! Come be challenged to grow and develop in your faith!

2. Community

You will live, work, and have fun together all summer long developing friends that will last a lifetime!

3. Experience

Students work full-time jobs at the YMCA earning a real paycheck. Not only do students gain unique job experiences, but they also gain invaluable relational skills. 

4. Fun

Between large group functions and your days off just minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park, you'll never be bored!

5. Summer

After college you will most likely never have a whole summer like this to invest deeply in your walk with Jesus! Take advantage of this opportunity while you can!

"Just do it. God will provide you with opportunities for your career, but you'll never get this chance again. Invest in him to see how he is working in you" (Freshman, 2022).
