Do you feel a call to ministry?

Do you recognize leadership qualities arising within you?

Are you frequently asking your pastor questions about your faith?


We want to help cultivate and empower future leaders within the Brethren tribe through Brethren Academy!

The Brethren Academy is a regional event for high school students to discover Brethren values and how those values intersect with their life calling. You will have the chance to explore spiritual formation, leadership development, bond with a mentor, and form lasting friendships as you grow deeper in faith.

Applicants must include a reference letter from their pastor, youth leader, mentor, or other adult. If accepted all expenses are paid for meals and lodging. The only cost for families and/or churches is transportation to get to the event!

All applications for summer 2019 events must be submitted by May 1, 2019 to be considered.
