CREATed-2-create camp

Through our camp, teens are given a chance to get away from the pressures of life and have fun learning a new craft. Students dig into a creative arts subject of their choice and put what they learn into practice through a collaborative camp performance. Diverse speakers and group sessions also help students make sense of where they are in life. Camps are exclusive to summer months and school breaks and are usually 7-14 days long.


Teen Events & Gatherings

Shine Worship Nights

The 4th Monday of each month, we hold a creative worship event for middle and high school students. In addition to collective worship and a mini-sermon, students' talents are featured, inspiring them to "Let their light shine before all" (Matt. 5:16).

The Kickoff

We are partnering with local churches and youth groups for this citywide Bible study effort. Participating volunteers meet with their small group of students on any given Monday to "kickoff" the week with God's Word. After some study time, groups are encouraged to go out and do an activity that's fun but also puts what they learned in that night's Bible study to action.

Community Projects

Grace Projects

We work with local community leaders & businesses to give teens an opportunity to showcase their talents. With guidance, these projects are carried out by students, from idea to manifestation. By empowering young people to put action behind their passion, they experience what living a life of purpose is all about. At the end of their project, teens also take part in a community service project that challenges them to act selflessly and love outwardly.
