The Tampa Project is a missions and training project for college students. The purpose of the project is to help students grow in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to teach them how to share the good news of Christ with others. It is also designed to help build responsibility and dependability into the lives of the students. Students work jobs in the community to earn money for the summer and reach out to those with whom they work. Evening and weekends are devoted to growth opportunities such as discipleship groups, Bible study, evangelism and worship.
A SUMMER TO GROW
You will receive personal attention to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ in small groups and project-wide meetings. These opportunities are designed to help you learn how to study the Bible better, memorize God’s word, pray, interact with others and build Christ-like character.
A SUMMER TO BUILD RELATIONSHIPS
You will be able to live, work, grow and have fun with other college students from SEMO, Murray State, LSU, MTSU and others who have a desire to deepen their walks with God. Social and group activities are all a part of the summer plan.
A SUMMER TO SHARE YOUR FAITH
You will have the opportunity to learn how to effectively share your faith through weekly evangelism training times. You will also get a chance to share what you learn with people in the community and in the workplace. As you attend a local church you will be able to minister there as well.
A SUMMER TO INVEST
If you accept the challenge to attend Tampa Project, you will be making a lifetime investment! The returns you will see will greatly benefit you personally, others around you, and the entire world! Watch this video to see how the summer projects have impacted others for a lifetime.
A SUMMER TO WORK
During the weekdays you will work a job. Working will allow you to build relationships, gain work experience and provide the finances for you to attend the Mountain Project. If you raise financial support for the project, you will still be required to work a job.
ATHLETES IN TRAINING (AIT)
AIT provides student-athletes the opportunity to receive intense training in strength and conditioning with position and skill workouts, while also working summer jobs and growing in their relationship with God. The high-intensity environment during summer project also allows athletes to grow in other important areas such as discipline and leadership.
