CIY Move: Senior High Students
Jun

to Jun 21

CIY Move: Senior High Students

CIY Move is more than a conference, more than a week of camp. Move, hands down, will be one of the most powerful and moving weeks of your life. We will spend a week diving into the theme of Contrast. This is where we will discover what it means to be a kingdom worker, how to be different and how to make a difference. There's a stark contrast between a life that's lived for the King and one that's lived for anyone or anything else. What are those differences? How should our lives be distinct? That's what this is all about. And the best part, we'll discover this together with our high school student ministry.

Summer in the Son: Junior High Students

Summer in the Son (SITS) is not just a conference, and it's way more than camp. For three decades, Summer in the Son has been a catalyst in the lives of tens of thousands of students. Some come for the powerful experiential worship environment, others for the in-your-face teaching from some of the best in the country. Mix in the tremendous youth group building experiences and some of the best Christian artists, musicians and comedians around...and it's a pretty special week for you and your peers. This summer, come see what all the fuss is about. It's a great opportunity to create life-long friendships that are founded in Jesus.
