The First Year Leadership Team is an opportunity for freshmen to:
- Develop leadership skills for ministry and service
- Take a more active role in campus ministry in your first year
- Form friendships and community in a context of faith
- Complete your required first level theology course with other students who share your interests
The members of this team will:
- Take part in an initial overnight retreat December 1-2 (finish by noon Saturday)
- Meet weekly for faith leadership development during free period (spring)
- Attend an overnight urban plunge retreat April 6-7
- Take Theology 154 together in the spring semester*
*This class will be held at 9:30am on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the spring semester. If you are selected for the team, you will be given instructions for signing up for this course as you register for the spring semester. Please ask if you have questions – we can help work this out! If you have already taken THE 154, you may still apply for the team but not the course.
If you are interested in being a part of the FYLT for the class of 2021, please check to confirm that you are available for the times and dates listed above.
