Summer Programs

The Summer Program of Stepping Stones, MBC's Youth Discipleship program, involves more than 100 youth and young adults between the ages of 15-25, split into 3 enrollment levels — STAND, Frontline and CORE.

The Spiritual Formation component of the program requires students to attend instructor-lead teaching sessions, group Bible studies, complete personal assignments, and participate in discussion and spiritual disciplines. All sessions/activities are designed to promote a deeper understanding and relationship with God.

In the summer program Stepping Stones students will be able to apply for a wide variety of service opportunities: Food Services, Housekeeping, Maintenance, Kids Ministry, Skills Instructing, Youth Ministry and more.
