WILDLIFE YOUTH PARENT GUIDE

2. Events and Offsite Programming
Our weekly events, and our offsite programming is announced in advance on our event calendar. Here are a couple major events for 2018/2019.
a). November 16-17, 2018 - Uprising Conference - Cost: $45
b). August 25-30, 2019 - WILIDLIFE Camp - Cost: $350
3. OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM
We are led by our Pastors, Jordan Michalski and Lauren Ritchie, but can only operate because of our dedicated volunteer team of 15+ adults from the Soul Sanctuary community. Our team has volunteered to work with your student because they themselves have experienced the life-changing love of Jesus Christ and desire to share it with everyone they meet!
We encourage our volunteer staff to connect with your student outside of Friday programming. We exist to introduce students to a life-giving relationship with Jesus Christ, as such, our leaders commit to journeying alongside your student in every season of life. This may include texting your student, supporting at sports events and engaging on social media.
a). All of our leaders have completed a Child Abuse Registry Check through the Province of Manitoba.
b). All of our leaders have completed Plan to Protect training, the highest standard of abuse prevention and protection to organizations servicing the vulnerable sector.
4. We are radically inclusive
We consider every student who walks through our doors to be family. We believe that no one was created to do life alone. We chose love as our primary ethic and extend the same grace Jesus gave us to everyone who walks through our doors. Your student is welcome here.
5. WE ARE YOUR ALLY
The influence of your home on your student is greater than the influence of our programs. We recognize this and desire to partner with you in every area of your child's life. We desire to see your student come to know Jesus and to live an adventurous life in pursuit of Him. We'll support your student in the difficult teenage years and will continually point them towards Jesus. Should you need to talk with us, we're available and we desire to connect with you!
6. We encourage involvement in the local church
When your student graduates, their time at WILDLIFE Youth will end, however, their involvement in the Church, God's ideal for genuine community, will not. We encourage all of our students to attend and serve at Soul Sanctuary. We also extend an invite to all parents to come experience Soul Sanctuary on a Sunday morning.
