SMI 2018 - anaheim, ca
What is smi?
Every year we spend about 15 weeks studying evangelism, apologetics, and Christian, Bible-based responses for various world views and social issues. During this time, the students are committed to prayer, Scripture memorization, and high standards of Christian living. The training all leads up to a week-long, life changing, summer mission trip.
To be eligible to participate in the SMI training and trip, all students must complete an application and meet with one of our high school ministry staff members for an in-person interview.
