HLA 2021: June 28-30, ONLINE
With calling as its primary theme, the Huntingdon Leadership Academy (HLA) encourages rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to attend this three-week summer virtual experience to grow their faith. The academy’s activities focus on discernment of each student’s calling to Christian leadership for ministerial vocation. Mentoring, discussion of current topics in the life of the church, cultural and mission-related events, and time for fun, praise, and worship are included.
A generous grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc., supports the Huntingdon Leadership Academy. We invite pastors and youth pastors at churches in the Alabama-West Florida and North Alabama Conferences of the United Methodist Church to identify and build future church leaders by encouraging students to register to participate in this program.
Who Should Participate
Rising 10th, 11th, and 12th graders during the summer who have the gifts and graces for ministry of any sort—whether as deacons or elders, missionaries, music ministers, children’s or youth pastors, worship leaders, or lay leaders, among the many ways to minister—should plan to participate.
The purpose of the Huntingdon Leadership Academy is to assist student leaders as they discern God’s call for who they should be and what they should do with their lives.
The leadership skills necessary for ministry are transferable to leadership in any area. Every participant benefits from what he or she learns during the academy and the Church benefits from the leadership these students are encouraged to give.
The cost for participation is $25.00, payable by the participant.
