Life at Wildwood!
Think of this: every day. 10 weeks (June 1st - August 8th). a janky mansion house. your new best friends; living together, laughing together, eating together, playing together, working together. learning, hoping, praying, and loving the world, all alongside one another.
Every day spent in community. Just like we were made to do.
We commit Life at Wildwood to two things: Treasuring Jesus. and Impacting the World.
We are convinced that, as we Treasure Jesus more dearly, our hearts will be compelled to Impact the World around us.
Wildwood Summer Project is designed in such a way that we desire to see students experience Jesus richly, and set every student up to live the rest of their lives on mission. Wherever you go, whatever you do, we want to equip you to Impact the World with the gospel right where you are. We look to have a balanced approach to witness, engaging in ministry witness, "body mode" witness in teams, and relational witness. However balanced, in comparison to other Cru projects we look to put a high emphasis in experiencing body mode and relational mode (learn more). (As a percentage of time spent in witness 20% is ministry mode, 40% is body mode, and 40% is relational).
How this looks on a day-to-day basis changes throughout the week, but there are certain things you can be sure of:
You’ll work a job (we’ll call that your “ministry site”) 30-40 hours/week. You’ll meet in small groups (“teams”) as you study the Bible together and do ministry together. You’ll cook meals together. You’ll use your janky mansion as a place of hospitality. You'll experience the Word with fresh perspective. You’ll have a weekly meeting where you can invite your new friends to experience God. You’ll be equipped to share your faith. You'll interact with thousands of international students. You’ll worship in community. You’ll go to church every Sunday. You'll see people come to Christ. You’ll have down time to hang out, grill in the backyard, throw the football, lay out at the beach, have fun at the boardwalk, etc.
(Check out a sample weekly schedule here from a previous project if you’d like to know more).
This is Life at Wildwood.
Life as disciples. Life to restore. Life as celebrators. Life to bless. Life together.
Take a risk. Come with us. You won't regret it. You may even just find yourself saying, "that was the summer that changed everything."
