What we're all about
What we shoot for
Ultimately we want to keep Jesus in the spotlight, Everything surrounds him. Everything is done for him, and with him. We want our students and their friends to experience and know him. With that in mind here are a few things we try to work at.
SimplicityKeep things simple enough so that all the stuff doesn’t crowd out the focus, Jesus. Allow for simple multiplication (reproduction) Tangible enough for a middle school students to grasp and reproduce on their own.
DependenceDo things that stretch and challenge students away from what they alone can do. Intentionally set things up so if God is not the one who does the work it will fail. Pray—pray—pray. Build a DNA of prayer; individually, through the week, and together as we gather.
CommunityOrganize and emphasize real community. This is more than a 15 minute discussion, it is doing life together. Talking, listening, sharing, playing, encouraging, studying, and living outward together. This community should be intentional with peers yet be tied into a parents intergenerational community that looks much the same.
FamilyBuild into the unity of the church as a whole and the families that are in it. Work towards doing more and more together and less and less apart. Understanding that give and take must happen and there is still a value in gathering just as students. Enforce the family as the primary disciplers of their children and support equip and challenge parents toward that. Redirect families towards living missionally together.
making it happen.

Check out ACTIVATE
Our desire is to provide a place that allows the truth of God’s Word to speak into your life and be the lens to discern real truth. Activate offers a variety of book studies, character studies, and a look at common issues in our culture. Activate is replacing Crash – be ready for a new kind of energy!
Check out RECHARGE
Recharge focuses on getting students plugged-in to a close knit small group guided by one or two leaders. Recharge will also include times of collective worship and games. It will be a safe environment for students to work through in-depth studies, connect with other students, and grow closer to leaders that can guide them in their walk with Christ. Recharge is replacing Breakaway – come check out the new vibe.
