The curriculum of Submerge is unlike any other learning experience. We seek to go beyond the classroom; every part of the Submerge experience is filled with purposeful and intentional learning. From community living, team collaboration, immersion in a foreign culture, our ministry and social outreaches, the Submerge experience will challenge you in new ways and propel you towards living the life of your dreams.
All of our classes are taught in a “round table environment” in which students are encouraged to probe and ask questions because we believe that you learn the most when you engage in a topic through conversation. Instructors share with the thought in mind; that one day you would start your own organization, business or ministry. Class content is rich with practical and life applicable behind-the-scenes knowledge that will prepare and equip you to accomplish whatever is in your heart.

One of the main aspects that sets Submerge apart from other learning experiences is the emphasis on cultivating a winning mentality and developing creative thinking. We believe that you can be book smart, head smart, and even exceptionally talented; yet, without creativity and positivity at work in your life those important character traits will be minimized and diffused.
Not only is the Submerge curriculum a fully integrated experience; it is structured in such a way that is relevant to all participants regardless of educational background. Whether you are straight out of high school or college, taking a gap year, or have fully launched into your professional career; you will be challenged and stretched towards creative growth.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”- Marianne Williamson
The Bloom series will challenge you to step outside of your normal and show the world around you who you truly are. Classes are custom created based on the various participants of each Submerge class.
This series takes an in depth look at this text from Romans 12:1-2.
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Throughout the Reject series you will be challenged to think about the way that you perceive yourself and what you consider "normal". You will be inspired to think about your life in new ways as you: reject, redefine, and reshape "normal."

The Leadership Journey
It's been said that the average person will unintentionally influence 10,000 people in their lifetime. Leadership is leadership, no matter where you go or what you do. Times change.
