Youth Engagement Programs


High School

Spring & Fall Youth Conferences are weekend events for youth held at Valle Crucis Conference Center. Spring Conference is for youth in grades 8-12 and Fall Conference is for youth in grades 9-12. The weekend is led by the Youth Council; they choose a theme for each event and then design a program of learning, reflection, and fellowship to be offered at each conference. The conference program consists of talks, small group discussion related to the theme, singing, dancing, worship, service projects, and games.


Middle School

Beginning in the Middle is a retreat for youth in grades 6-8 held at Valle Crucis Conference Center. This retreat is designed to address and respond to spiritual issues, concerns, and needs of middle school aged youth by focusing on topics such as who is Jesus, peer pressure, friendship, parents, and prayer. The weekend is led by high school youth and consists of talks, skits, small group discussion, singing, worship, crafts, and games. 


Fellowship Events           

Throughout the course of the year we have several youth events just for fellowship and fun. These events change yearly but, in the past, have included an afternoon at Lake Eden, trampoline parks, ski trips, and other adventure trips.
