Commission

http://www.columbiabaptist.org/uploads/2waypoints3_commission.png The Commission Waypoint occurs as students graduate high school. Developmentally, this is one of the greatest transitions that young people experience in our culture. It marks the movement into adulthood. In the life of the family this is also one of the largest transition a family makes. The transition that often gets overlooked is the spiritual one. We believe that we are called to equip students to be commissioned as missionaries to their world at this life transition The seminars and events for this Waypoint take all these transitions into account and attempt to prepare student and family for this next phase of life.

    • At the "Blessing Them as They Go" seminar Waypoint Sunday Apr 27th, we discussed what it means to bless your child. Our desire is for parents of seniors to write a blessing to their graduate that we will then place in a bible that we will present them on June 8th. For more direction watch the video below.
