Setting The Course

Study

Through Bible study, book discussion, and hands-on group projects, students will gain a deeper understanding of who God is and wrestle with theological concepts that will impact their Christian worldview. No matter your future vocation, you are called to live in communion with God. You'll learn spiritual disciplines to show you how!

Leadership Development

Servant leadership is a Christian philosophy that puts forth the idea that for one to lead, one must learn to serve. Compass students will have unique opportunities to serve churches, retreat guests, and each other during their time in the program.

Skills

Compass students will earn their Lifeguard Certification and High Ropes training as well as receive training on practical skills:

Cooking and Meal Planning
Resume Building
Conflict Resolution
Public Speaking
Basic Car Maintenance
Budgeting and Personal Finance
Simple Home Repairs
Health and Wellness

Reset

Our Compass students have the chance to press pause from the pressures and expectations of life by taking a step back and examining their life in light of who they are and their relationship with Christ.

Adventure

An opportunity within the Compass program is expanding one's horizons through domestic travel. Compass students who participate in the full 9-month program will experience the following:

Colorado Wilderness Trip
Cross Country Road Trip to Upstate NY
Service Trip

Meet Chris Radloff

Chris has been involved in camp ministry since 1987 and has served at Cho-Yeh since 2015. Ultimately, he sees Compass as an amazing opportunity for students to dive deeper into their faith, make lifelong friendships, and create memories that will last a lifetime. He is excited to meet the new Compass students and hopes that they walk away from the program feeling closer to God and more equipped to serve His people – wherever He leads.
