Youth Mission Trips

Summer 2021 offers more opportunities than ever for middle and high school youth groups to put their faith into action through challenging and rewarding youth mission trips! Groups will complete projects such as repairing and renovating homes for families in need, building mission and ministry facilities, leading children's outreach programs, working at homeless shelters, responding to natural disasters, and reaching out to individuals and communities through Christian service.

Dynamic Nightly Programming

We know impacting your youth is more than doing mission work. The group needs to be poured into as well. Our nightly chapel services gear towards worshiping Jesus and helping with discipleship through messages and youth group discussion time.
