Are you passionate about guiding and mentoring teenagers? Are you a professional counselor looking to serve God through using your gifts and skills? Have you ever wondered if spending a week with a teenager really makes a difference in their life? Quest might be just the place for you.
Quest kicked off during the Summer of 2010 as an adventure style camp for teenagers who live in Grundy County. Our goal is to provide an experience where youth are able to explore character building through challenging events such as rock climbing and ropes course elements. Mountain T.O.P. partners with the Grundy County High School guidance counselor to recruit youth who would most benefit from this program.
Though Mountain T.O.P. staff sets the program for Quest, AIM participants actually facilitate the week. They act as mentors, guides, and caregivers for the youth by encouraging each other in word and deed. Each day’s activities is centered around a specific character trait. Specifics of the week and a schedule are provided to AIM participants closer to the week. There are also opportunities for you to share your faith story in group and individual settings. Quest culminates on Friday with a special time to celebrate with friends and family.
Participation in all of the adventure challenges is not a requirement to be involved with Quest and experience is never a prerequisite for AIM. However, a love of Jesus and a calling to share His love in a unique environment is a must!
