The “gap year” is a social institution in many countries. It is the practice of young adults to take a year off between high school and college. The year ideally includes real life experiences that develop character and wisdom.
The gap year provides clarity and understanding for young adults to understand how God uniquely wired them. It is a great benefit for those facing the challenge of choosing a major in college or a career path after high school.
This issue is a resource every pastor should give to young adults during their junior year in high school (and their parents). It should be sent to every Christian High School and guidance counselor. It should also be read by Christian College Admission Offices.
