ONE of the Lilly Endowment's 12 theological programs for high school youth on a college campus, Horizons gives rising 10th, 11th and 12th graders an opportunity to explore their faith, plunge into service, build friendships and gain confidence — all with the end goal of preparing future leaders for the Church. Horizons is held at Maryville College.


Team building activities such as a low ropes course and a climb up the Mountain Challenge Alpine Tower will help to sharpen leadership skills and foster a sense of community. Small discussion groups on issues of faith, leadership, and vocation help to broaden perspectives and promote learning.


Worship services led by MC Campus Minister Rev. Anne McKee, a guest musician, and the student campers will feed the spirit, and a hike in the Smoky Mountains will evoke the beauty of God’s creation. A group service project will help to turn faith outward as campers begin to live out their calling to serve the world.


The cost for the week is $225 per student, which covers food, housing, and events. Horizons participants who later enroll in Maryville College are eligible to receive the Horizons Leadership Award, worth $500 in aid annually.
