The Quest for Manhood

Teamwork & Leadership

Quest Advanced is focused on teamwork and leadership. Classes include Apologetics, Evangelism, Biblical Counseling, Bible Study Methods, Basic Leadership, and new hands-on skills training, along with sports, hiking, canoeing, and rappelling.

Disciplines for Success

The most important aspect of maturity is a young man’s walk with God, and Quest focuses on developing good habits for lifelong spiritual growth. Areas of focus are Daily Devotions, Journaling, Scripture Memory, and Character Training in Responsibility, Time Management, Orderliness, Humility and more!

It took the spiritual part of Quest, and just magnified it into something much greater and, I found, really exciting… Advanced taught me how to dig deep into the Word of God and to study it with intensity….

Before I came to Quest Advanced, I didn’t really care about the Bible. I didn’t read it every day; it was just a thing that happened, if it ever happened. I went to church ’cause I was kind of forced to. I lived for myself… I had an attitude; I was immature. I knew it, and I didn’t really care. During Quest Advanced, I was completely changed… I went from not really caring about anything, to loving the Word of God and reading and studying it. It seemed to me as if we were studying the Bible constantly…

When I get home, I am planning to share with my family and friends that I’ve changed. I hope to influence everyone I’m around in a good godly way. Right now, I don’t know what God’s call is for me, but I know it’s to serve Him and to please Him in everything that I do.
