EXCEL is an eight-week program designed to provide young ladies aged sixteen and older with vital training for life through a curriculum based on Proverbs 31. The goal of EXCEL is to equip young ladies with the Biblical principles, Godly character, and practical skills that will allow them to radiate the brightness of the Lord Jesus Christ through their thoughts, words and actions.
"These past two months have been the best two months of spiritual growth I have ever had, and I have been blessed by each and every teacher. When I came I was rebelling against my parents and my authorities, I wasn't getting along with my siblings and I was full of bitterness and anger. While here I've been drawn back to God's side. I have been learning and reflecting on how wonderful, how glorious and how awesome the God we serve is. I highly recommend EXCEL to all young women. It is a time of rich spiritual growth and developing long lasting friendships and memories." ~ Malia George, EXCEL 26

"EXCEL was an amazing time to step away from the influences and pressures of home and focus on God. Through many different speakers, excellent leadership, and varied activities, God changed my heart to show me the incredible blessings and plans He has for my life. I was challenged to know why I believe what I believe, to make and solidify commitments, but most importantly, to focus on my relationship with God. EXCEL was a time God used to expand my vision of Him and to show me the importance of acting today to impact eternity." ~ Emily Mawhinney, EXCEL 26

"EXCEL was a wonderful experience for me. It helped me clear up things in my life that might hinder me from serving God fully. The sessions were invaluable in helping me better understand my role as a princess of the Most High King. The practical skills I have been taught here will enable me to serve my family and others better. Also, the friends I have made here have been kindred spirits and iron sharpening iron. I am very grateful that God led me to come to EXCEL and for the things He taught me here." ~ Abby Beets, EXCEL 26
