Experiences that Give Our S.T.E.P.S. Momentum
Our freshman mentoring program is a powerful example of how students build a faith community on campus by learning, worshipping, sharing and ministering together.
Seniors in the Servant Leadership class mentor freshmen through weekly Bible classes, and through iTAG (I Think About God) worship groups. In these forums, they model acceptance, unity and care through Christ, and help freshmen bond and build self-esteem.

“Freshman mentoring really helps to dissolve social barriers and increase the comfort level of the seniors and freshmen s they continue to interact an develop relationships.” –Amber, FLA Senior
