Mission

  Our Mission is to inspire and disciple youth to live as free people.  "Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor." - 1 Peter 2:16-17

What To Expect

Our gatherings are on Thursday and Friday nights. These nights are an opportunity to express our love to God through worship and relevant teaching, and is a great way for students to build relationships with their peers and leaders.

Thursday’s are for all Jr. High students grades 6-8 starting at 6:30pm.

Friday’s are for all Sr. High students grades 9-12 starting at 7pm.

Encounter 2017

Every year we take the students on a winter retreat to Wisconsin where they can get away to worship God, encounter his presence and learn about his amazing love for them and the great purpose he has for their lives. It’s an unforgettable experience! Check out the recap from last year’s Encounter!
