FOCUS’ Student Leadership Summit (SLS) is designed to providing student leaders with the skills, confidence and leadership they need to become disciple-makers on campus. The five-day program, which took place January 1-5 in Dallas, trained participants in discipleship, prayer and small-group facilitation.
Students from Columbia, NYU, West Point, Rockland Community College and Cathedral Seminary attended the conference. The New York contingent (see photo, below) also included National Review editor-at-large Kathryn Jean Lopez (who wrote this article about the event), members of the NY Campus Advancement Council and Michael Coppotelli from the Archdiocese of New York.
The five-day conference packed in more than 20 hours of structured training, inspirational keynotes, prayer sessions and ample opportunity for participants to come together and experience genuine fellowship. Future blog posts will show, through video, images and the student leaders’ own words, how SLS gave them to tools, confidence and commitment to go back and share their faith on campus.
FOCUS hosts two major conferences in the US, SLS and SEEK, which alternate years. Over 10,000 students attended SEEK 2015. Registration for SEEK 2017 is available online. All college students who are seeking, questioning, and craving are invited to join the group next January in San Antonio.
