Miller SYI gathers 40 rising high school seniors and college freshmen from across the country to participate in our program. SYI is designed to form an intentional Christian community where young people can be challenged to move beyond their comfort zones in order to grow in faith, engage in academic theological study, and explore ministry. In addition to times of study and reflection, you will have the chance to participate in outstanding recreation events, or shall we say, have fun! This year SYI is joining with Waynesburg University to offer two college credits to all students who attend the entire program.
