For those High School grads not going to school and staying home, having that distinguishing “next chapter” marker is also crucial. A young adult exchange between two churches helps that next faith development step.

Similar to exchange programs hosted by schools and our own Slingshot exchange with CABC, it provides an opportunity for the graduate to learn faith and ministry in a different context. CBOQ has a template for a memo of understanding that can serve as a basis for that arrangement.

A church doesn’t need to be both a sender and receiver. All arrangements can be established independently.
