WHAT ARE THE DETAILS?
We believe that the college and twenty-somethings are some of the most exciting and critical years of your life. It’s a time to unpack your bags and really find out how God has designed you. It’s a time to discover who you are in Christ. It’s a time to realize that God has made you a perfect match for the generation in which you live. He has planted you in this generation for a strategic purpose, and you’ve been wired to fulfill His purposes, together with other believers.
WHO: College and twenty-somethings, 18-24 years of age; post high school, before college or in a college gap-year, or immediately after finishing at the university level.
WHAT: A full time one year leadership development institute where you will plug into God, plug into community, and begin to understand your design and the part you’ve been given to play in the BIG story of God.
WHEN: Annually, August through May. Applications must be submitted before August 10th.
WHERE: Nestled against the Pikes Peak foothills in the beautiful city of Colorado Springs, Colorado. One of the most breathtaking places in the United States, you’ll love the grandeur of the mountains, the inspiration of the morning sunrises and chance to turn the Rocky Mountains into an almost infinite playgound! From physical training at the school, to white water rafting, hiking and packing through the mountains, canyoneering in some of the greatest locations on earth, and maybe even a few special surprises, we’ll use the area in which we live to learn and encounter the truths of God’s Word reflected all around us.
HOW: You will live in a community-style residence with other students and staff, one street over from the Old Colorado City district downtown. Blocks from coffee shops, Red Rocks Open Space, the famed Garden of the Gods, numerous parks, and even ski resorts within a couple of hours drive. Room and board, all classes, fees, books, and trips that are taken within the 9 months of the school are covered in the annual tuition of $15,000. Students will cover their own personal expenses (eating out, car care, non-school entertainment, etc.). All payments and contributions can be made out to “Revolution5” and sent to: Revolution5, PO Box 6473, Colorado Springs, CO. 80934
WHY: Because you’ve never felt average. Deep inside, you don’t fit the status quo. There’s a yearning in you to do great things, to experience depths of relationship you never thought were possible, to reach out to a generation dying to live, and knowing the LIFE – becoming prepared to lay down your selfish interest for those that are gloriously HIS, to encounter the Living God and His plans for this generation. Let the adventure of a revolutionary life begin!
