children & student summer events


Collision is a student-led ministry that builds teams of students who see their school as a mission field and equips them to share the hope of Jesus to transform lives. You don’t need to be a “super-Christian” to join this class. This class is for EVERYONE who has accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Parents, join us as we explore what living CHRIST@HOME looks like in different families. Three families will be highlighted over the three BOOTCAMP dates, same time as the kids meet, but in the GAME PLAN CENTER. We aim to:

  • Encourage families to be INTENTIONAL as we are called to disciple our kids
  • Learn the evil in comparison, however, sharpen one another as we learn together
  • Seek Jesus first as we discern what living CHRIST@HOME looks like in different family dynamics and rhythms
