General Information

WORK While attending the Orlando Project, you will work a full-time job. Most students have the opportunity to work at Universal Studios. Working will help you build relationships in order to share your faith, give you work experience and provide the finances for you to attend the Orlando Project. If you raise financial support for the project, you will still be required to work a full-time job.

CONNECT You will be living and working alongside 200 other Indiana college students with the common goal to grow in a personal relationship with God. The Orlando Project provides an environment for you to build life-long friendships with other students, as well as opportunities to sharpen each other spiritually: “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” (Prov. 27:17). Social and group activities are all a part of the summer plan.

GROW The Orlando Project will provide opportunities to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ in small groups and project-wide meetings. These opportunities are designed to help you learn how to better study the Bible, memorize Scripture, pray, interact with others, and build Christ-like character.

INVEST By participating in the Orlando Project, you will be making an eternal investment in your relationship with God. The returns will impact you personally, others around you, and the entire world. “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth…but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.” (Matt. 6:19-20). You will ultimately invest your summer in something – why not invest it in your eternal relationship with God?
