Our time together will begin in September and last to the end of the scholastic year. 

What will the young adults learn?

Will there be someone with a leadership/mentor role living in the house? 

  • Yes, Derrick and La Dauna Boulianne will be in a unique role as participants but also leaders. As for mentors we will have mentors within the organization paired with or available to participants. 

What makes this program unique? 

  • Our focus on World Mission, the unreached, engaging the culture around us while navigating what it means to follow Jesus and be a part of the mission of God makes us unique. We are focused on preparing holistically and intentionally for the ways in which God calls us to participate in His Global Mission.
