Help Youth Live Christian Science and Share it with the World

DiscoveryBound’s National Leadership Council (NLC) is a four-year service-based leadership program for Christian Science youth. We believe this program cultivates in youth a life-long love for living Christian Science and sharing it with the world and a natural desire to give – as individuals, church members and contributors to a wider community.

NLC Class Leaders are integral to this program, acting as the primary guide for up to 20 students throughout the four years. Class Leaders facilitate monthly conference calls, teach the NLC curriculum, plan, budget and guide summer trips, create a supportive community of teens, mentors and parents, and act as Christian Science role models.

Together we can achieve our mission of “Opening Windows to God” for Christian Science youth, adults and families. We look forward to partnering with you!

We lived Christian Science as we started each day [of our Adventure Trip] with a focus and meaningful discussion of a Beatitude. This experience helped us all understand the true meaning of the Sermon on the Mount and see its living examples in our lives.
