Discover a life worth living.

There's more to life than your degree. This is the start of a life worth living.

Growing in Community

Year 1

As a first-year WinShape student, you'll come to Berry College's Mountain Campus the summer before your first year of college to grow together as a class, get to know the WinShape College Program staff, develop a Biblical worldview, and discover how to live out of your identity in Christ.

Year 2, part 1

In year two, you will learn to be your best self in community with others. You’ll uncover your strengths on a trip to Chicago. Throughout the year, you will meet weekly in a small group to learn about your unique identity, including their strengths, spiritual gifts, passions, and purpose.

Year 2, part 2

Over Christmas break, you’ll travel as a class to Washington, D.C. You’ll trace the footsteps of our country’s most influential leaders, leading you to create your own life purpose statement and unique understanding of who God created you to be.

Years 3 & 4

Years three and four focus on allowing you to live out of your gifts, passions and love for Jesus. You’ll join with your classmates who have similar passions to execute a project that changes the world for Christ.
