Parents, we're here for you.
We are so excited that your son or daughter is considering taking part in LiNC! We firmly believe that this is one of the most valuable things a college student can do with his or her summer. These students are given a rare opportunity to develop skills, leadership abilities and character traits that will become part of the foundation of who they will be for a lifetime.
We want you to know that we are committed to keeping you in the know about our summer mission projects and what they involve. We support you, both as a parent and in your role as a guide and guardian of your child. We have tried to tackle a few of the burning questions that are likely on your mind here on this page, but we encourage you to contact us with any other questions. (You can also find additional answers to financial questions on our Finances page.)
Each student accepted to LiNC has the opportunity to grow their faith by trusting God to provide the financial resources needed to attend the project. It is not a requirement of LiNC that students raise support, but we do encourage students to consider it for two reasons:
1. It is a tremendous opportunity for them to trust God to provide for a specific need, and
2. Doing so will allow your student to save more of what they earn from their summer job.
We provide great resources to help your student learn how to invite others to partner with them this summer, both by giving financially and praying for them. Each of our staff members at LiNC has experience building a team of ministry partners, and God has provided for them as well as for students who have attended LiNC in previous years.
If you have any questions about the support raising process or any other financial matters related to LiNC, feel free to contact our LiNC staff.
We know how important it is for you to be able to keep in touch with your son or daughter while they are at LiNC. If you have any questions not answered here, please let us know!
Yes, of course! We welcome you to come and see what LiNC is like. Just let our staff know when you would like to drop in.
WHILE ON PROJECT...
Our schedule at LiNC is hectic, but we encourage our participants to keep in touch with you as much as time and resources allow. Each student will have pertinent local contact info to pass along to you as well.
While we ask that students commit to being at LiNC for the duration of their project, for the sake of team unity, we we also understand that the need may arise for them to be away from the project for a few days. We simply ask that students notify us in advance of any family plans.
