Shelby Galles || DCLP 2015-'17
From Redding, CA
My favorite NYC memory takes place at the beach in the Summer of my first year in DCLP. We were living with Metro World Child Ministries; in Brooklyn, so the trip wasn't as far to Far Rockaway as it would be now. Our entire team of staff, and students had a fun day in the sun with swimming, body surfing, volleyball, sand castles, just every beach activity imaginable - we had achieved it that day! By the end of the day most everyone was burned and exhausted (some more than others), but that beach day holds a lot of fond memories and inside jokes that are sometimes retold to this day!
Jesus is and will forever be my favorite thing "Learned" while in the Leadership Program. He brought me to DCLP & used it as a platform to show me His goodness, His faithfulness, & His Love. All actions He's been doing for me even before time, but it wasn't until He took me from my home, my hurts, my comfort zones, that I was able to recognize them & fully receive them. He's grown me & is growing me still to be His perfect design : who I am meant to be. So all around my favorite thing learned and grown in is Jesus & His love for me.
Now I am on staff with the Dream Center NYC!
