Four Day Class

March 25-28, 2019

The Four Day Class is a dynamic, hands-on leadership experience where students learn about state government from a Christian worldview.

The Four Day Class will meet Monday through Thursday morning at First Baptist Church of Lincoln, just across the street from the Capitol. Please use the back entrance arriving no later than 12:45 p.m. on Monday. Students should eat lunch prior to class.

 

On Thursday afternoon, the class and graduation will take place in the Warner Legislative Chamber of the Nebraska State Capitol located at 1445 K St, Lincoln, NE.
