Pathway

One Year to Impact a Lifetime!

Matthew 28:19a “Go therefore and make Disciples…” 

Pathway, Year of Disciple Making, exists to equip and train young adults (18-25 years old) to be Disciples that Make Disciples LIKE JESUS. More than just Sunday morning worship, Pathway allows students to be saturated in a Christ-centered community to become aware of Jesus and who they are in Christ. We are passionate about seeing young adults set their foundation on Jesus in their vocation and calling. Partnering with local Churches in the Lake Geneva area and Moody Bible Institute for the glory of God, Lake Geneva Youth Camps and Conferences is creating space for the Gospel during the formative years of a young adult’s life. One year to impact a lifetime of work, relationships, and service, all for God’s glory and His Kingdom.

Disciple-Making

There are a lot of opinions on how to approach developing people to live a life for Jesus. So, we want to be clear on our approach:  

  • Truth! Daily saturation and study in God’s Word.  
  • Relationships! Intentional individual and group mentoring. 
  • Practice! Space to put into practice Jesus’ example. 

There is much to be said on this topic. Register for a preview day or give our office a call to hear more. 

Who is discipling Pathway participants? 

Heather Krup has been a part of the LGYC community since 2016. Starting on summer staff she was asked to transition to full-time staff in the Fall of 2018 to oversee our Pathway: Year of Disciple-Making. She graduated from Judson University in 2015 with a Worship Arts degree and has served in 3 different church ministries since then. LGYC is the 4th camp she has served at and experienced a program similar to Pathway. She has been very intentional to take her own experience and build on it to lead Pathway. Some of the greatest influences in her training and development as a Disciple-Maker are Megan Fate Marshman, David Platt, Matthew Chandlier, and her boss Jeff Andridge.  

Heather has the most interaction with students daily, but partners with the LGYC Full-Time staff to mentor and disciple Pathway students. Heather is responsible for setting up those partnerships through our work skills and weekly mentoring experiences.  

Gap Year

Jesus and how he lived his life is the foundation of Pathway. We spend a large part of our year simply observing Jesus’ life and how the rest of scripture points to His coming. Not only does he desire us to imitate him, but he wants us to teach others how to do the same (Matthew 28). We believe that Disciples become Disciple-Makers by spending time with Jesus and putting into practice what we see Him do in scripture.  

        There are 4 Core elements to expect by being a part of Pathway that allow space to develop Disciple Makers: 

  • 12 Months living in Christ-Centered Community in Lake Geneva, WI. 
  • 12 Credits Online through the globally renowned Moody Bible Institute.  
  • 9 Day travel experience broadening your worldview 
  • Work and Life Skills impacting you to live a biblically faithful life 

Room and board

Housing and Food

Room and Board is INCLUDED in your Pathway tuition and is required for all who are participating in the Pathway program.

Students will have 50% of their food supplied and prepped when groups are on the grounds. When no groups are on the grounds, students will be responsible for shopping within a budget given, preparing a family-style meal, and being rotated through a clean-up schedule. Tuition covers the cost of food throughout the year.

Year at Glance

Work Study: Late August – May

 

The focal point during this part of the program is… 

  • Serving in a variety of camp departments 
  • Studying Moody classes 
  • Serving the local church 
  • Studying the Word of God daily 

All of which leads to conversation and development in character and leadership.

Summer Service: May-August

When May rolls around our Pathway Participants will transition to being key leaders on our summer staff!

This is a great opportunity for students to put into practice everything that they developed throughout the year by welcoming other summer staff and serving guests/campers all for God’s Kingdom.

College Credits

Moody Bible Institute

Moody Bible Institute Distance Learning will provide a variety of undergraduate courses in the areas of theology, Bible, ministry, and education. Whether the goal is to earn an accredited degree or to grow a deeper understanding of the Bible, our prayer is that these online courses will help develop a passion for God’s Word and give participants the tools to make the most of their daily walk with Christ.
Over 9 months, Pathway students will participate, at a significant discount, in four Moody online courses that have been specifically designed to challenge students academically while developing their Christian walk. Each eight-week course has a week-by-week schedule consisting of reading assignments, projects, and discussion board posts. Students will interact with their professor and other students through the discussion board.
Course Offerings From Moody Bible Institute:

  • Spiritual Life & Community
  • Old Testament Survey
  • Interpreting Scripture
  • Bible Introduction

Class assignments are week-by-week and a “week” runs from Tuesday through Monday. By Monday night, the week’s classwork must be completed. Students determine when to complete their work, based on their schedule. The cost of these online courses is INCLUDED in your Pathway tuition. The cost of books is an additional cost.
We observe regular school breaks such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Break.

12 Months

Pathway Spring Trip! 

We believe it is crucial for young people to get out of their own norm and experience the world.  This is the time of the year that we reflect on all that God has done and encourage one another as we travel in a fresh setting. 

In years past we have traveled to Greece, Turkey, Tennessee, Missouri, Kentucky, and North Carolina. The Spring trip falls over Moody’s Spring break so that students don’t have to balance travel and their studies.  

Work Skills:

Our Pathway Participants will serve in a variety of departments during their time at camp. They will have the opportunity to specialize in 2 of the following departments.  

 

Advancement & Marketing

Business & Office 

Food Service

Guest Services 

Housekeeping

Maintenance

Program  

Recreation

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does the Pathway Tuition cost and what does it include?

The Pathway Program’s tuition is a total of $10,000 and includes: Room and Board, and Four Moody Classes. It does not include the student’s monthly stipend. We have researched other programs and they average between $13,000 – $30,000 and do not typically include college credits, so this truly is a great value in many ways. 

Can I work off the program expenses while I am at camp?

Part of our year of disciple-making includes working at Lake Geneva Youth Camp and Conference Point Center on the weekends and during the summer to gain valuable skills, develop discipline and build a strong work ethic. This is part of our work-study program and will directly offset the student’s program fees, contributing $3,000 to program costs for each student. This is already calculated into the overall payment schedule and should not be considered an extra way to pay off the monthly or out-of-pocket costs of the program. Essentially, Lake Geneva Camps and Conferences offsets $3,000 per student that they work off while they attend Pathway. This lowers the upfront out-of-pocket costs making the program more affordable from the start. We recommend that students budget $50 per month as a stipend for incidentals (not included in the Tuition total). All other basic costs of living at camp and on trips are taken care of.

How do I apply for grants or educational loans?

To be eligible for student grants and loans you must be enrolled in an official Associates Program with Moody Bible Institute. The classes we are offering through Moody are able to qualify but a more rigorous application process is necessary through Moody to be approved for the program. For details on the next step call: 262-248-5500 and ask for the Pathway Coordinator

Do I have to attend for the whole year?

Yes. Each participant in the Pathway program should be fully committed to completing the entire year. Dedication to completing this commitment is part of the process of maturing and persevering as an adult.

What if I have a family event/wedding that occurs during the program, can I attend?

Like most college settings, excused absences are allowed with proper notification and coordination with program leadership.
