SOLID ROCK LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE

The Solid Rock Leadership Experience (SRLE) is a partnership between Solid Rock Discipleship, Adventurous Christians, and the Northwest Conference. It is an experience incorporated into a student’s year at Solid Rock Discipleship beginning with an eight-day, immersion leadership experience in the setting of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. During the SRLE students will be given opportunities for both learning about Christian leadership and identifying/forming their own leadership style and gifts. This will be accentuated through the unique dynamics embedded in wilderness canoeing and camping experiences. The students will also begin to form a community which will propel them in working and leading together throughout the rest of their time at Solid Rock. 

Following the 8-day experience, students will be mentored over the course of the year and given opportunities to lead in various ways; Lake Beauty Guest Groups, Lake Beauty Retreats, local youth groups, local churches, and a local elementary school. This will help them formulate further leadership goals and help them discern how to best use their gifts to humbly lead others for the kingdom of God.

“The Solid Rock Leadership Experience was a great chance for me to go out into nature and be able to see God work not only in my own life, but others too. I liked learning about who I am as a leader, and how I can improve as one too.”
