To provide a launching point for youth into a lifetime involvement of SERVING JESUS through missions and ministry by connecting them with the mission field of TODAY!


Our purpose is to CHALLENGE students, ages 10-20, to give their life for a CAUSE that is greater than anything they may have previously thought of or imagined.  The CAUSE is the proclamation of the gospel of JESUS CHRIST to the whole world. We are intentionally seeking out students who are ready to go far beyond anything their iPhones, XBoxes, girlfriends, boyfriends, sports, clubs or even their college plans could ever offer them!  The CHALLENGE is for students to live an Acts 1:8 lifestyle.

Plenary Speakers

Our opening event will take place on Friday night, with three additional events throughout the day on Saturday. You don’t want to miss a single minute since you will get to hear dynamic speakers, experience amazing worship, and be motivated by student testimonies.
