Opportunities for High School Students

Worldview Training

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a worker who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.”  2 Timothy 2:15

Summit Ministries

How a society answers the tough moral questions will be determined by the worldview of those making the decisions. In a world that continually bombards young adults to question the truth and doubt their faith, Summit Ministries is standing strong in its mission of “Raising generations to embrace God’s truth and champion a biblical worldview.”

Speech and Debate

Participating in speech and debate is a tremendous way for students to gain experience with public speaking, logic, reasoning, and civil debate. Below are two organizations which do an excellent job in providing the training and community for students to thrive.

“But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, but with gentleness and respect.” 1 Peter 3:15

Stoa Speech and Debate

Stoa defines its mission as follows: “Stoa is a national High School and Junior High Speech and Debate organization serving the needs of privately educated, Christian Homeschooling families. Stoa trains and supports leaders who in turn develop students into confident, articulate leaders who can change their culture through the marketplace of ideas. Our students become like family, learning to encourage one another, accept criticism, and accept both victory and defeat with grace. Our graduates have become leaders at every level of work, community, and ministry.”

Civics and Government

“[a]s, therefore, every [citizen] is interested in the preservation of the laws, it is incumbent upon every man to be acquainted with those at least, with which he is immediately concerned; lest he incur the censure, as well as inconvenience, of living in society without knowing the obligations which it lays him under.” Book 1, Introduction, Section 1, §6 (William Carey Jones, editor, 1915)

“Do you see a person skilled in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure people.”  Proverbs 22: 29
