About Leaders in Training
LiT is an awesome week for youth in years 9-12 in 2018. You will meet fantastic friends and have a brilliant time but it’s also pretty hardcore. We are going to push you hard to think about your faith and how you can use your gifts for the glory of God. The whole week is about growing you as a Christian, as a leader and as a servant of Jesus and His people.
We will be looking at the book of Deuteronomy and our main speaker (Mike Raiter), with two other speakers at Spring (Ed Sowden and James Delanty) and Summer (Josh Goscombe and Josh Hayward) will be helping us to look into Luke and see Jesus, as he resolutely sets his eyes towards the cross.
If you love Jesus and are passionate about serving Him with your whole life then LiT is definitely for you.

Partnering with LiT
LiT seeks to serve the local church by providing a place for junior leaders to be encouraged and equipped for ministry and we would like your church to partner with us by sending leaders and youth. This provides the necessary leadership to run a successful camp and a natural capacity to follow up and support the junior leaders after camp. You can further compliment LiT by integrating the training from camp into your broader training strategy.
We recognise that it’s not always possible to send a leader from your church. In that case we would like to invite you to send your youth and let the bigger Christian family support you as we collectively seek to equip and encourage our young leaders in training.
Leading on LiT
The opportunity to be part of God’s enabling and equipping of our young leaders at such an influential time cannot be over estimated.As a leader you will have four primary responsibilities:
- Teaching the youth faithfully from the word of God through a Connect Group each day. You will be supported by resources and paired up with a co-leader.
- Share your life and pastorally care for the campers in your Connect Group and spend time with them during the program and free time.
- Be an example of godliness.
- Help the campers from your church identify opportunities to use their gifts and the skills at church and school.
If you are interested in coming to LiT as a leader please contact Ed Springer 0419 277 408 or firstname.lastname@example.org

I’ve never been to LiT before…what stage should I be in?
If you’ve never been to LiT before you should start in Stage 1. If you have been a Christian for a while, you are serving in your church and you have done leadership training through church and school we will still get you to start in Stage 1. Our program is designed to build on the previous year(s), so you will get the most out of it if you start at the beginning. The exception to this is if you are already in year 11 or 12, then you can sign up to do Stage 2. We don’t take any campers in Stage 3 who have not already done Stage 2.
Can I jump straight into stage 2 or 3 so that I can be with my friends?
If you are in year 9 or 10 then you will need to start in Stage 1 (for Summer, that means if you are in year 9 or 10 the year before camp). If you are already in year 11 or 12, then you can sign up to do Stage 2. We don’t take any campers in Stage 3 who have not already done Stage 2. You will make new friends on camp and have time with friends from other stages during free time and the Gathering.
Will I get to spend any time with friends who are in other stages?
Yes! Free time each day and the Gathering each evening see all 3 stages come together, so if you have friends in other stages you will be able to hang out with them then.
How does the accommodation work?
We allocate rooms according to gender for each stage, and then you get to pick your room groups from there. So if you are a guy in Stage 1, you will be in a room with other guys from stage 1. There is time to get to know other people from your stage before you choose your rooms, so even if you come to camp not knowing anyone you will have time to make new friends before you have to work out which room to go in.
