Residential Communities

The WinShape College Program cultivates you to become a leader with purpose and guides you along an intentional path to a fuller life in Christ. Along the way, you’ll travel, make enduring friendships and have a positive effect on your community through team ministry. The path brings you to a stronger faith that equips you to impact and influence others.

Year 1

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

Year 2

Part 1

During the first semester of year two, you will learn to be your best self in community with others. This kicks off with a trip to Chicago where you’ll uncover your strengths alongside others in the program. Throughout the year, you will meet weekly with a small group to learn about your unique identity, including your strengths, spiritual gifts, passions, and purpose.

Part 2

Over Christmas break, you’ll travel as a class to Washington, D.C.. There 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 others in the program who have similar passions to execute a project that changes the world for Christ.
