“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”- 1 Timothy 4:12
Teens get enough classroom learning during the school week. We want to teach, show, and encourage an active life with God at the center and that’s exactly what our retreat, trips, and events do! Our goal is that all of these experiences are times that students can connect with God and each other in ways that make it easy to invite their friends.
