Called Higher Sailing
The heart behind Called Higher sailing is to bring youth outside in the marine environment and give them opportunities to grow in character and Christian maturity. There are so many sailing and maritime illustrations that communicate Biblical truth. We teach these lessons through hands-on instruction in sailing on Tuesday afternoons as well as Bible studies. Throughout the year we take the team on sailing adventures. These include overnight trips as well as some longer ventures. We have sailed as far south as the Florida Keys and been out as long as two weeks in duration. We have seen teenagers who had never been sailing grow and mature, eventually captaining the boats and becoming instructors to the younger sailors. I cannot describe how awesome it is to watch the sailors mature and take responsibility and then teach the younger sailors, not only sailing skills, but Biblical lessons as well.
Every Tuesday after sailing we "raft up" in the Indian River Lagoon for a time of Bible study, snacks, and fellowship.
