“Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.'” Matthew 22:37-40 NIV

Our goal is simple: We want every teen who graduates from our program to be a committed and loyal disciple of Jesus  Christ.

These verses give us a structure to accomplish this goal. We first seek to love God with all that we are. We want our teens to have an authentic relationship with Christ that will sustain them throughout their lives. Because of that relationship, we seek to find opportunities to love those around us – our friends, family and community. We hope you join us in this mission!

Events
 

Small Groups

At times during the year on Sunday nights, we will meet in our Connect Groups. These groups give us time to connect on a deeper level with our teens. We pray for each other, share our joys and struggles, and encourage each other.

 

 

Retreats

A couple times a year we take a weekend to grow closer to God and challenge each other to live like Christ. These retreats offer a chance to recharge and recommit to being God’s light in the world.

 

Other Activities

We have many other events throughout the year like service projects, eating meals together, or devotionals in families’ homes. We seek to be a vital part of the church family and interact with all ages of our congregation.

Wilderness Trek

Trek provides the opportunity to not only climb a mountain in Colorado, but to spend time with God in seclusion, to build teamwork and grow spiritually with friends.

Zenith

An exciting high school camp session held on the campus of Oklahoma Christian University. Zenith is a week in June that will affect your life for the rest of the year!

Cornerstone is our camp for junior high teens on the campus of OCU. Challenging classes, exciting entertainment, and uplifting worship make the camp a highlight of the year.
