Our Mission

To be intentionally involved in our community, families, schools, circles of friends, and our church in such a way that people will not be able to deny how powerful the love of God is. In order for this to take place we are committed to meeting together regularly to learn and study the Bible and to have fellowship and accountability with one another. We’re devoted to one another and strive to be challenged, and to grow in our capacity to love.

What We Believe

Jesus wants to use us. And the fact that we are “just students” should never hold us back from believing that we can accomplish amazing things with His help. All throughout scripture, God uses young people to speak and act boldly for Him. We intend to do the same.
