Do I have to be military or a military dependent to participate?
While that is our major demographic you do not, we are open to anyone applying who resonates with our vision to be a disciple who makes disciples.
Can students have a leadership role with LifeCompass?
Yes, each LifeCompass session will have Resident Assistants (RA). The RA can be a single or married couple, without children. Learn more by reading the RA Job Description.

How will I pay for it?
We have never had anyone not be able to come due to finances. We encourage you to invite people to invest in you as you pursue God during this time, much like a missionary raises support. We will coach you through this process.

Since you are receiving a service they will not be tax deductible.
