See what people are saying about the Steubenville Florida experience!
"They bonded as a group and have taken on the responsibility of welcoming new teens and trying to draw in teens that tend to remain in the background. They have stepped up and come up with ideas to incorporate in our youth ministry."
"They were just shining love and so focused on the other kids. Both were able to lead small group discussions and spent some one on one time with some of our group members."
"Before the LEAD week it was always weird trying to tell someone about the faith and how God works. But through the experience with giving my testimony I realized one of the most powerful things I can do is merely tell people of how He's worked in my own life!"
"I wasn't unwilling to be a witness, it was that there was always this fear of rejection that would hold me back. But one of the most beautiful things about LEAD is that it dispels the fear and empowers you to be that witness to others."
