Reimagining Our Young Adult Impact

For 40 years, the WinShape College Program has been guiding young adults on a proven path that leads to spiritual growth and life-defining development. Now, we’re in our own season of development as we re-imagine how we will cultivate Kingdom impact for college students in the years ahead.

A Legacy for the Future

In 1984, Truett and Jeannette Cathy launched the WinShape College Program as a place for college students to find Christian community while earning their degree at Berry College. While we have grown and evolved our ministry models over the years, we’ve found ourselves asking how we can most deeply invest in the lives of students moving forward. As a result, we are returning  to the original vision for WinShape College Program and partnering exclusively with Berry College to “shape winners” out of young men and women during their undergraduate years. We will be sunsetting the Residential Communities at Belmont University, University of Central Florida, and North Carolina State University—as well as our Discipleship Intensives—later this fall.

Our Program at Berry College

The WinShape College Program remains on mission to cultivate college students in the areas of discipleship, community, and leadership at Berry College. Our program model will continue to offer students an annual scholarship to live, study, and grow together through small groups, mentorship, and service teams throughout these formative years together.

The application for the incoming fall 2025 class will launch in late fall 2024. Be sure to check back on our website then for more information and the link to apply!
