Disciple Makers in Training
“As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.”
JOIN US FOR DIT 2023!!!
With COVID in the rear-view for many, the DIT program will continue with its original 3 week experience, in person at UB Youth Camps. Fantastic!
This summer, DIT’s will spend one week at Hidden Valley Campground and then two weeks volunteering at UB Youth Camps, also at Hidden Valley Campground. While we know it is hard to commit to a full 3 week tour, we do expect that each DIT will commit to at least one camp volunteer week, either Junior High or Junior.
Who is this for?
People born in 2005, 2006, and 2007 who are growing in their relationship with Jesus.
When is it happening?
Sunday July 30th to the morning of Saturday August 5th.
Where is it happening?
Hidden Valley Camp at:
452 Bruce-Saugeen Townline,
Is there a cost?
The cost for DIT 2023 will be $550/DIT. This will cover all admin fees, food and accommodations at Hidden Valley Camp.
Note: A $100 deposit is required and will be deducted from the $550 fee. The DIT Leadership Team will work with each DIT to fundraise the remaining $450, along with planning fundraiser events at our local UB Partner Churches.
So, What Will DIT’s do?
What does it mean to be a disciple?
This is the very core of the DIT program. Together, we will seek to answer this by turning our attention to the way Jesus lived, conducted his ministry, and called his disciples.
Jesus has called every man and woman of faith to this path.
“Then Jesus came to them and said,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28: 18-20 (NIV)
DIT’s will explore spiritual practices that have been used by followers of The Way to strengthen their relationship with Jesus, and themselves.
These practices range from simple things, like journaling and reading scripture, to the harder things like an evening of silence and solitude. Each DIT will respond to the practices in their own way, and we will explore these practices together.
12 One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.
Each evening will include an inductive study of scripture. DIT’s will each take a turn leading one another in this unique method for studying scripture.
1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
Psalm 1:1-2 (NIV)
We will work with Shiloh and Living Hope UB Partner churches in the Port Elgin area to serve the local community through their outreach initiatives. Each DIT will have a chance to engage with the community in a tangible, faith building way.
12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
John 15:12 (NIV)

23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
Luke 9:23 (NIV)
