ENGAGE Youth Theology Initiative
The ENGAGE program will follow a hybrid model this year, with virtual classes taking place July 6-9, and an on-campus residency scheduled for July 12-15.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2021 ENGAGE Youth Theology Initiative, hosted by Lipscomb's College of Bible and Ministry. High school students from diverse backgrounds will examine the call to racial justice and healing; the histories of both the church and U.S. Civil Rights movement; and what it means to live a life of Christian leadership and service.
College credit is available for those who complete the ENGAGE program. University admissions criteria must be satisfied.
Young people today are eager to discover how their faith and vocation can connect to real-world issues in the here and now. The ENGAGE Youth Theology Initiative teaches students how they—using the skills and talents God has given them—can become the change they wish to see in the world.
Lilly Endowment, Inc. has pledged to financially support the work of ENGAGE Youth Theology Initiative as we launch this brand new program for high school students at Lipscomb University. However, we desire to keep the summer academy going well beyond the life of the Lilly grant. To that end, we are accepting donations from individual sponsors, churches, corporations, and non-profits who would like to partner with us in developing the next generation of theologically minded and socially engaged young people. Your tax-deductible gift will go directly toward the development and sustainability of ENGAGE. We thank you for contributing to this worthy initiative.
