We Are On Your Team.
Are you ready to join ours?
We’re not for everyone. We’re for the adventurers, the investors, and the ripple-effect makers. The intentional livers and contagious fun spreaders. For Kingdom advancers, discipleship lovers, and childhood advocators. For the broken, the gifted, and the living-in-grace-ers. For people includers and community builders. For the generationally-minded and eternity-focused who will love sacrificially and let peers become family.
Are you any of these? Then we’re for you.

Emerging Leader Program
Learn to Lead . . . Like a Boss
The goal of the Emerging Leaders Program is to establish mature, life-long laborers by developing their life and leadership skills through business experience, community development, ministry preparation and spiritual growth.
Aspects of Development
During the year, ELP-ers do inductive Bible studies, spend extended time alone with God, attend workshops, participate in book studies, and hear from guest speakers. During the summer, they invest in our summer staff through discipleship and leading Bible studies.
ELP-ers learn the ins and outs of the business of Eagle Lake while serving on our team. They participate in many aspects of our business, from Admin and Customer Service to Recruiting, Hiring, Program Development, and more! They also develop business skills through professional development opportunities.
Ministry Partner Development
ELP-ers are required to raise financial support. This is a ministry of building relationships and learning to allow others to be a part of what God is doing by supporting the ELP-er financially and through prayer.
ELP-ers have the opportunity to gain first hand ministry experience during the summers through discipleship and leading Bible studies with our summer staff. They are also encouraged to continue growing in ministry experience during the year through involvement in local churches, Bible studies and discipleship with former campers and staff, and other ministry opportunities in the community.
During the summers, ELP-ers develop their leadership skills by serving as either a Program Coach or Program Director. In the off season, they explore the principles of leadership through Bible studies and book studies. Eagle Lake also helps ELP-ers examine their giftings and passions through a variety of methods, including Meyers-Briggs, Personal Values, StrengthsFinder, and Spiritual Gifts. We then work to help ELP-ers develop their strengths and values and challenge them to learn and grow in other areas.
