Compass: A Bridge Year Discipleship Program

Intentionally Choose the Direction of Your Next Steps

With a deep passion for growing up the next generation of Christian leaders, Camp Cho-Yeh is establishing a 9-month intensive discipleship program where 18-21 year olds can experience authentic community while learning character-shaping disciplines.  Highly trained staff will come alongside our Compass students to provide a nurturing, hands-on environment focusing on:

  • Discipleship and Bible Study
  • Communication Skills
  • Healthy Conflict Managment
  • Teamwork
  • Service

Transparent conversation and wrestling with difficult faith questions are encouraged while living at Cho-Yeh’s lakefront Lighthouse Point.  Prepare to face the challenges of college while learning how to be a cultural change-agent in your generation.

The Mission of Camp Cho-Yeh is to be a place where Jesus Christ transforms lives through meaningful relationships and outdoor adventures.

Cultivating Faith

Spiritual Formation

A quiet cove on Lake Livingston serves as a beautiful backdrop for you to search Scripture with mentors to find a deeper understanding of who you are and the role you play in God's story. Classroom instruction provides training on how to study the Bible and how core Christian doctrines shape personal decisions and worldview.

Nurturing Community


Cooking family-style meals, group recreation, and service projects provide opportunities outside the classroom for students to practice communication and leadership skills. Learning crucial conversation skills and conflict resolution will help participants function as a team as they explore their strengths and identify their role in the Body of Christ.

Time Management | Humility | Leadership

Lighthouse Point

Live Together

A beautiful 3-story home located on the southern shore of Lake Livingston allows students to live, work, cook, and learn in community.

RAs on each of the gender-separated floors help students navigate conflict resolution, cleaning schedules, and meal planning.
