What Do TnT Participants Do?
The TnT Program encompasses a large variety of activities. This includes; Bible Studies, fun outings, prayer groups, quiet times, one on one time, cabin times, and work times. In every activity, we want to incorporate spiritual truths that can benefit them in their faith. The schedule varies week by week based on the group size and the needs of camp. As TnT’s are accepted into the program we will send out a more detailed and specific weekly schedule, including the material being covered and activities for the week.
Areas of Training
Training our students in their spiritual walk is one of the most important aspects of the TnT program. Our goal is to provide a variety of activities that aid in this growth. One of the ways we do this is by conducting daily Bible Studies that vary in topic and are easily applicable to their lives. These often encourage deeper discussions and questions that as a team we help them to explore. To learn more about their stories and help them on a personal level we seek out one on one time with individual TnT’s. Also, as discipleship leaders, our team provides the students with tools and different ideas on how to conduct a personal quiet time. Overall our goal is to equip students to pursue and develop their own spiritual walk.
To help strengthen churches and families we aide in the leadership development of the students. We want the students that come through out program to come out with the skills and confidence necessary to be effective leaders. We do this by providing opportunities for TnT’s to take on leadership roles under the guidance and encouragement of their TnT Coordinator and leaders. One of the ways we accomplish this is by allowing them to lead Bible Studies, work shifts and discussion groups.
As a TnT team we strive to teach the students what it means to serve Christ and to do so joyfully. We demonstrate to them that service means putting others before yourself even if it is an inconvenience. Our goal is for the students to realize that service has nothing to do with ourselves but rather glorifying God in our work. We provide the teens with many opportunities to work in real life jobs where this idea can be put into practice. We also teach them that serving is fun and not something to dread. For many teens, this is their first work experience, therefore, as a team we want to be role models that display what a servant of God looks like.
