CHALLENGE:
Challenge is an every other year growth level conference for junior and senior high students that daily combines great worship and challenging speakers with youth group dynamics for ministry outreach in the site city, training sessions on pertinent topics and recreational activities. It is an opportunity for youth groups to worship and learn together, to serve together, to play together and to be challenged to grow in their faith as individuals and as youth groups – to become effective Christ followers who impact their world for Jesus Christ.

BRIDGING URBAN MISSION PROJECT – B.U.M.P.
Engaging real people in real ministry, BUMP students receive training on issues in the areas of poverty, compassion and justice. Students participating in BUMP are empowered to rise up as tomorrow’s leaders and challenged to continue the mission for the rest of their lives. Read stories of BUMP 2013’s impact, and get details on 2014 locations, dates, pricing and registration on the BUMP WEBSITE. Plan for your youth group to serve for an urban church for a week and gain ministry skills that last a lifetime in one of seven US cities this summer.
REBOUND:
Rebound is a four day retreat designed for the youth worker and their spouse (if applicable) to get away to reconnect with God, one another, their calling and their identity. The worship gatherings, schedule, and environment are all designed to facilitate these “reconnections.” Our desire is to encourage long term, healthy student ministries by ministering to the youth workers. In our five plenary sessions you will experience prayer, worship, and opportunity to interact and minister to one another. Scholarships are available upon application to Tim Olson. GET THE SCHOLARSHIP FORM HERE
