This year's Leader Legacy takes students on the journey of being a scholar who is transformed by Christ and His truth. Students will explore the history of Christian scholasticism, the call to be discerning and to be salt and light. They will then have the opportunity to explore cultural challenges to scholarship as well as see and hear from examples of those who have embraced the call to be salt and light in the realms of science, philosophy, history, and theology.
This road trip is not your typical "church camp" event...it is an event designed specifically for students to experience, interact with, and teach truth to each other. Each day is packed with experience, but do not fret...time has been carved out for fun every day! Registration information is below...check it out!
Please note that while this trip will be a lot of fun, it includes a lot of walking, a need for focus, emotional stability, and an ability to work in teams. Please evaluate if your student is ready and work with your student ahead of time to prepare their mindset for this trip. Questions? Contact Shane directly by clicking here!

Who will be looking after my student?
Students will be placed in adult led small groups while on the trip with each group responsible for obtaining information at different sites, and teaching others. Students will also have free time to explore sites (beyond their group's objectives), and more. Students will not be in groups without adults.
Lodging during lock-in experiences will be utilizing air mattresses/sleeping bags as we will sleep in gender designated areas on the ground.
Lodging at Cincinnati Christian University will be in gender designated dorms. Students will have adult leaders assigned to their hall, but leaders will not be in each room.
Students will need to eat breakfast before arriving at Southview on Sunday morning, June 17. During the week, all meals are included in the cost of the trip. Meals will sometimes be prepared and served at our host location, others will be at restaurants while we are on the road (students will be given a per diem), and others may be brown bags that students will pack for themselves. Please make sure your student is aware of their allergies when making their lunch or eating out.
Does my student need to have insurance?
It is helpful for each student to have health coverage prior to attending Leader Legacy. If you are not insured and would like information regarding a temporary insurance policy to take affect during the trip (to include travel dates) please contact www.missiontripinsurance.com or call 1-800-576-2674. Please plan ahead in order to secure insurance approval prior to the trip. Please note that a comprehensive plan for the week is very affordable.
How can I get in touch with my son/daughter during the adventure?
You may reach your student by contacting Shane Lakey at 832.259.1580 or another leader via their cell phone (a list of leader's numbers will be provided to you). If you are unable to reach Shane or another leader please leave a message, and your call will be returned as soon as possible. Students will be permitted to use their cell phones during specific times of the day in conjunction with the daily agenda. Students will not have 24 hour access to their phones in order to maintain the focus of our trip.
How is discipline handled?
Our adult leaders are responsible for enforcing rules and the Code for our students. If a problem escalates beyond the individual leader, the student minister will become involved. Students not willing to abide the code will be asked to leave by Southview at parental expense.

When registering, you will be prompted to provide medical/allergy information. Please make us aware of any allergies your student may have as we seek to take appropriate measures to ensure the safety of your student. While we will do all in our power to monitor allergies, please make certain that your student is personally aware of their allergies and can communicate confidently with adults regarding them.
Also, any medications that your student will need while participating in the Leader Legacy will need to be sent in zip lock bags along with dosage instructions. Please label the bag with your students name. Medicines will be supervised by group leaders. Students are not permitted to carry (exception being epi-pens or inhalers) or distribute medicine (including ibuprofen or Tylenol) to guard against potential harm, both physical and legal. Students must be aware of their medicine schedule and not rely solely on an adult to remind them. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please contact Shane Lakey.
