Yes, I recommend this program


Overall really enjoyed this opportunity. Definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone and I got to hang with super rad people while doing it. It made me read books that I never would have picked up and I learned something different from each one. Also really enjoyed having a mentor, It was nice having someone else to talk to during this group. We talked about things I liked and what I was struggling with. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to be pushed and challenged while growing closer to God.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
Thinking about things I never would have tho about on my own.

Living it up in the mountains while serving and growing in the Lord. It honestly doesnt get much better then that. Through this program I have had plenty of opportunities to be challenged and grow from and lots of opportunities to get out and explore in creation. From speaking on Sunday mornings, leading the youth group in worship, attending staff meetings, building rock steps down to the river, silence and solitude trips, reading a number of books together, dozens of guest speakers, community service projects, Sunday morning church setup and tear down, capstone projects, and so much more.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Come with an open heart to receive all God has for you and be sure to spend as much time adventuring and exploring all that Tahoe has to offer and of course make sure you've got a reliable vehicle for the winter!

Tahoe Resident Leadership Program

The Tahoe Resident Leadership Program has been a great opportunity to grow in relationship with God and others. Weekly book studies, small group meetings, and leadership discussions provided spaces in which I could expand my perspective and learn from fellow interns. Through the program we were granted access to some amazing speakers with invaluable insight on a variety of leadership and faith related topics. This program offers the opportunity to live on 52 acres of riverfront property within a town containing countless invitations for engagement with adventure itself. It’s a win, win situation!
