CONQUER THE JOURNEY. COMMAND THE FUTURE.

A leader is not a tourist, but rather, an explorer in life. A leader takes risks, plays an active role in determining their future, and jumps at every opportunity to learn and grow.

The Journey teaches students what it means to lead with purpose—to inspire positive change in themselves and their communities—and fosters valuable skills that will continually guide them through life.

By combining activity, curriculum, and discussion, The Journey engages students in a whole-brain, experiential learning technique that has been proven successful. Administered with this approach exclusively by Grace Adventures, travelers of The Journey become independent, critical thinkers that can overcome obstacles and reach their goals. In fact, college students who completed The Journey consistently averaged a retention rate of 93% in the years following their training.*

*Study conducted from  first-year University student groups in 2003-2009. The university retention rate for students who did not complete The Journey was  10% lower than those who did.

CONQUER THE JOURNEY. COMMAND THE FUTURE.

A leader is not a tourist, but rather, an explorer in life. A leader takes risks, plays an active role in determining their future, and jumps at every opportunity to learn and grow.

But how does a Christian leader differ? Above all, they are grounded in biblical truth and strive to fulfill God's highest potential for them as a servant leader.

The Journey teaches students what it means to lead with God's purpose—to inspire positive change in themselves and their communities—and encourages them to continually seek God's guidance through life.

By combining activity, curriculum, and discussion, The Journey engages students in a whole-brain, experiential learning technique that has been proven successful. Administered with this approach exclusively by Grace Adventures, travelers of The Journey become independent, critical thinkers that can overcome obstacles and reach their goals.
