Compass creates space for each group to form its own unique characteristics and allows space to have safe, vulnerable, and engaged communities. It utilizes methods that engage the mind, heart, and body to ensure a memorable experience. It instills hope and confidence to a cross-cultural journey of unfamiliar terrain and orients both your attitude and character in a direction that will have a lasting impact.
Here are some of the key components of the Compass program:
1. Language Acquisition: The program will help you prepare to become proficient in a new language, You will develop the skills, methods, techniques, and attitudes necessary to learn another language by practicing more than 30 techniques. You will develop a fresh new perspective on how languages are best learned and taught how to take the driver’s seat you’re your own learning.
2. Cultural Awareness and Acquisition: This program will help you suspend judgement and remain open to new cultural ways while retaining your sense of mission and morals. You will be challenged to constantly exit your world and enter those of your teammates, kids, spouse, and the nationals you will be serving.
3. Personal Growth: Compass will give you an opportunity to grow in your relationships, first with God and then with those around you. It will challenge your ability to stop and get your bearings, by showcasing the importance of slowing and practicing the sabbath.
While parents attend Compass, CHIPs objectives parallel the adult ones. This creates natural talking points and allowing families to continue the learning process together outside the classroom.

Compass is very interactive and community building. It was very personal, focusing on families and singles, hands on simulations, and not just talking about Sabbath, but doing it!Compass Alumnus
