My STP Experience

Luc Lawrence

“I became a Christian at a young age, but I never understood what it really means to have a relationship with God until I went to STP. The most impactful thing I learned was who I am as a result the Gospel. I was overwhelmed by God’s unwavering love for me, and that I get to pursue a relationship with him. I got to experience that surrounded by other students also striving to become more like Jesus, and I made lasting friendships. STP changed the direction of my life!”

“I deeply cherish my summers spent with The Navigators at STP. This experience provides two very unique opportunities that I have seldom seen elsewhere. First, it is a chance to see what genuine Christian community looks like. STP will encourage you to be loved by letting others into the hardest parts of your life, a very scary but liberating experience. Second, I have been able to use STP as a proofing ground for taking God at his word and making extreme strides in my faith. I dared to trust God with big things and STP provided the place to put that trust into action. God is no more present here than he is anywhere else, but having a community of people chase after him together helped me to more clearly see just what he is capable of doing.”

“My two summers at STP were definitely two summers that I will never forget. Not only did I get to meet some really amazing people, I also got to spend time devoted to growing in my relationship with Jesus. At the beginning of my summer as a Team Member, I didn’t exactly know what to expect. I was just kind of along for the ride, but as we studied scripture together, the theme of grace began to emerge. Through all of the workshops, NavNights, and meetings with my Team Leader, I realized that for so long, I had been so legalistic about forcing myself to spend time with my Creator, that I forgot to enjoy that time. It was at STP that I finally began to enjoy spending time with my Savior, entering into his presence, and allowing Him to teach me even more about himself and how He loves me. It is a one of a kind atmosphere of experiencing the Lord with college students from all over the country, and there is nothing quite like it! If anyone is considering any STP, just go! Not only will you form habits that you will keep the rest of your life, but you have the very unique opportunity to spend your summer devoted to meeting and growing with Jesus. “
