• Once a month, from 4:30 to 6:00pm, all of our High School students gather together for our YOUTH GROUP LIVE event, to experience a night of worship, teaching, and games together. This is a great invite opportunity.
  • On every other week, students will gather with their LifeGroup in places like coffee shops, homes, parks, basketball courts… you name it, we might have it!
    • For students not connected to a LifeGroup, we have a LifeGroup sign-up page that you can sign up through, or you can Contact Us to find your best fit!
  • LifeGroup leaders will be reaching out to and even hanging out with the students in their groups throughout the week in a variety of mediums.
  • For High Schoolers, we offer at least one social event per month out in the community to build relationships.
  • As a Church, we host Encounter Nights that we encourage our students to attend. We even host a pre-party 30 minutes before, specifically for students.
  • During the Summer, we attend Passion Camp.
  • During Fall and Spring, we host on-campus events that bring an exciting twist on what it looks like to follow Jesus. (Hint: It’s FUN!)


We believe students will experience all God has to offer when they connect in life-giving relationships. 

LifeGroups provide connection to authentic discipleship, new friendships, and tons of fun.
