Step Up Leadership Program – Leadership Lab

As we seek to help make fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, leadership training is critical to equip students to impact the world.

Oak Grove Student Ministry offers various opportunities to mentor students in the ministry both in the classroom and service.

For students (and adults) who sense God’s call to teach we offer quarterly mentoring in the Student Ministry University. The teacher in training is paired with a seasoned small group leader to gradually apply relational and educational skills to disciple teenagers.

What Is Leadership Lab?

We also participate with the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware’s Amped Student Ministries Leadership Labs. These retreats offer students a chance to listen to community leaders and work in small groups to develop and apply what they learn. These retreats are held at Skycroft Conference Center in Middletown, Maryland and are free for those who attend either the reCharge Summer Camp or reBoot Winter Retreat. More information is available at their website:
