Come join the 120 who are considering or planning on being a part of the Casual Catalyst Conference College Ministers Cohort! But if I haven’t been able to convince you to take part… maybe college minister Ashley Williams, now a Catalyst intern, can – with one of the coolest opportunities to strengthen your college student leaders!
Catalyst University is an AMAZING opportunity that I feel goes unnoticed by many college students AND collegiate ministers. College students can earn 1, 2, or 3 credit hour through the University of Mobile, an accredited four-year Christian university – and very inexpensively, too.
This is an opportunity for your students to get leadership training from the BEST in their field. I first went to Catalyst as a college student, and it changed my life. I came away being more confident in who I was in Christ and how to best use my gifts and talents to further the Kingdom of God.
Students can transfer these credits as a Psychology credits or as a free elective.
There’s three options, too:
1 Semester Hour
Cost is $150. Students must attend the Catalyst conference on Thursday and Friday as well as complete the assignments outlined in the syllabus. The $150 covers the application fee and one official transcript fee, but does NOT include the cost of Catalyst Conference.
2 Semester Hours
Cost is $250. Students must attend the Catalyst Labs on Wednesday, Conference on Thursday and Friday, as well as complete the assignments outlined in the syllabus. The $250 covers the application fee and one official transcript fee, but does NOT include the cost of the Catalyst Labs and Conference.
3 Semester Hours (with a Saturday component – perfect if you’re planning on attending the Saturday forum as part of the College Ministers Cohort!)
The cost is $615. Students must attend the Catalyst Labs on Wednesday, Conference on Thursday and Friday, and University Workshop on Saturday, as well as complete the assignments outlined in the syllabus. This cost covers the Labs, Conference, Workshop, application fee and one official transcript fee.
So what can your students do to set this up? They’ll want to check out the site (www.catalystconference.com/university), and then send the application, tuition, and registration to Catalyst. The application deadline is Friday, September, 24.
If you have ANY questions about registering students, registering college ministers, Catalyst University, etc., please feel freedom to contact me via email at ashley.williams [at] catalystspace.com, or call my direct line at 678-225-3101. I would love to chat with you and help you out.
Remember the present student rate ($159) and present college ministers rate ($199) ends June 24th, 2010! [If you don’t register through Ashley, be sure to ask her or me, Benson, for the Group Code. If you’re listed as Attending or Maybe on the College Ministers Cohort Facebook event, you’ll get the code every once in awhile.]
I am SO honored and appreciative of Benson for letting me take some space on his blog. I am by no means an “expert” in the field of college ministry. BUT I have a huge heart and passion for our field. -Ashley, whose blog can be found here
