Waypoint Students University

About this Event

Did you know that only 4% of Gen Z have a biblical worldview? Biblical illiteracy is at an all-time high with the next generation and church as a whole. Waypoint Students University will aim to provide our current high school students with the foundational and rich knowledge of correct biblical interpretation and doctrinal truth. On June 5th, we will launch a six-week course that will challenge, equip, and empower our high school students to grow in wisdom and application of the powerful truth of God's Word. The best thing is that it is free! Below you will find the course outline and you will want to make sure that your high school student joins us at 9:00 AM on Sundays at The Realm.
