Dominican Republic Spring Break Mission Trip 9th Graders through 12th Graders
Every March, over Spring Break, we travel to the Dominican Republic for a week of working for the benefit of others. This is an amazing opportunity, and it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all those attending. Join us as we do construction work, teach kids in a classroom setting, and head out to small villages to help with Village’s medical team! This is a unique trip each year and not only do we grow together as a community, but we also change the lives of those we encounter, finding ourselves changed in the process.

High School Montreat Completed 9th Graders through Graduated 12th Graders
Montreat is a summer camp/conference center located in the hills outside of Asheville, N. C. Each year we take high school students to enjoy the experience of the camp with hundreds of other students from groups around the country. Each day we hear an amazing keynote speaker in the morning, experience blended small groups (you meet tons of people from other churches!), have the opportunity for recreation in the afternoon, and return in the evening to hear an incredible preacher. We rent two houses, one for the guys and one for the girls. Every night we have a chance to meet, bond and debrief. Students consistently hail this trip as a highlight of their summer. Limited space is available each year so be sure to keep your eyes out for registration information!
