Teleios Leadership Development Program

What is Teleios?

This four week discipleship and leadership development program is designed for students who want to know God more, develop a Christ-like character, grow in their leadership skills, and learn practical ways to extend grace and love in their communities. Those who have finished grade 10 & 11 are invited to apply and join us for an amazing summer. 

This program will run twice in the summer (July and August).  Each session includes an intentional mix of training, team building and mentorship and immersive ministry under the leadership of the Teleios Directors.

Cost and sponsorship opportunities

Program Cost || $500

Sponsorship Opportunities:

There is the potential of your registration fees being ONLY $50 with the rest being covered by the sponsorship options listed below.

Returning Staff

$150| | If you have worked at SABC for 6 or more weeks in previous years, you qualify for an automatic $150 sponsorship from our Leadership Fund.

Church Partnership

$300 || If your church is able and willing to sponsor you, you will qualify for a matching grant from SABC up to $150.  (Church $150 + SABC $150 = $300)
SABC values the church and understands the importance of partnering with churches to develop Christian leadership in young adults. As our local churches identify and invest in their young leaders, SABC will honor that investment with a matching grant.

Please note that this is not an agreement that SABC has with area churches nor is it a for sure thing.It will depend on you approaching, inviting and sharing with your church family that this investment into your leadership development is exactly that, an investment, and not something that will be wasted.

SABC provides a sponsorship package that will help you approach your church family to ask them for their help. This could possibly come from a number of areas within your church - for example, a youth camp match fund, or missions fund - so we ask that as you approach your church to join you in this summer, you are prayerful, thoughtful, prepared and creative in your conversation in regards to this partnership.

**If you qualify and receive both grants, admission is only $50.

Note: We do not wish for financial hardship to be the reason you are not able to participate in Teleios- please contact the camp if there are further financial barriers preventing you from applying to this program.
