Proságo uses adventure and community to develop Christian character and leadership competence in young adults.
Brief History of How Proságo Got Started and Why It Exists
Proságo was created to meet a need that Medeba saw for developing young Christian leaders. The program began in 1993 with 4 participants and has evolved through the last twenty years to the point we are at today. Leadership is our first and foremost priority. We believe there is no greater avenue to affect change in the world outside of leadership and with this realization we are committed to developing the next generation of Christian leaders.
