VINTAGE // Our summer discipleship project that is aimed to equip students with a lifelong passionate pursuit of Christ.  (More details below!)




SAN DIEGO CHURCH PLANTING INTERNSHIP // Partnering with NAMB missionary Jeremy Aylett and Missions Trails Church in San Diego, California for six weeks within our summer project Vintage.


Vintage 2016….a look into our summer project:


Why Vintage? Jesus says, “The harvest is plentiful and the workers are few.” He’s right. Vintage exists to help equip you to make a difference on your campus. It is designed to help you be a worker in God’s harvest field. Both while you’re in college, and for years beyond. Knowing Christ is a free gift. Following Christ will cost you everything. Vintage can help propel you in the right direction, and be you with a purpose.

This pursuit will ultimately lead you in two directions:

1. A genuine pursuit of God. Christ said himself, “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him he will bear much fruit. Apart from me you can do nothing.” A huge part of this project is learning to remain in Christ.
2. A genuine love for others. True love for God propels you to love others. It is not simply about you becoming a “better Christian.” It’s Acts 20:24 and Matthew 28:18-20. This project helps you explore ways God wants to use you to reach others.

This is the something more. You only get a few summers. Do not waste them. Invest them into something eternal…something that will help you in the, oh so sweet, journey of following Jesus!

“Vintage is a summer discipleship project that encourages true Biblical community while equipping students for a lifelong passionate pursuit of Christ.”

– Matthew Ferren, Vintage 2012 Participant
