My LTN community became my family - some of the strongest friendships I've ever had. I have never felt so supported and known!

God used LTN to foster a love for Christian community, a desire to live like Christ and an ability to see the dignity of ‘the least of these.’

SERVICE

As a part of the LTN Institute, you’ll be able to make a significant contribution to the work of a local nonprofit ministry through serving 20-30 hours per week over a year. In this time, you’ll be able to dive deeply into relationships with the people you’re serving as well as the people you’re working alongside. You will also have time devoted to building relationships with people in the neighborhood in which you live.

COMMUNITY

Spend a year sharing almost every part of your life with 2-3 other Christian young adults in your triad. The relationships you build will shape you for life. By God’s grace and through prayer, intentionality, sharing, and conflict resolution, you will learn how to care for one another despite differences in background or personality. In addition to growing alongside your triad, you’ll spend regular time with the whole team worshiping and sharing how you see God working.

DISCIPLESHIP

To experience the life of Jesus, you have to walk in the lifestyle of Jesus. Learn what this looks like through extensive coaching on how to set goals and be intentional about how your life is structured. On top of this, you will have regular meetings with a Christian mentor, read and discuss curriculum with your team members, practice silence + solitude daily, and receive regular teaching from pastors, authors, and non-profit leaders on a wide range of topics.
