Learning stuff is good and all, but DOING something with what God is doing in us is really where it’s at! That’s why we have mission experiences for students to get involved in.

These experiences give middle school students and high school students an opportunity to live out their faith by serving others, sharing God’s love, and the message of grace with the world around them! From overseas trips to across-the-street efforts, we take seriously the Great Commandment that tells us to…

We want every student who wants to be stretched spiritually, who wants to give to others, and who are ready to take the next step in their faith to get in on one of these experiences! We always do our best to keep costs low so that as many people as possible can be a part of God’s mission!


June 20-25, 2016 – Middle School Mission Trip to Kilmarnock, VA

July 10-17, 2016 – High School Mission Trip to New York


Every fall and winter, we have retreats for our students to enjoy and grow in.

Our fall retreat is a time for our students to get away from the routine for a powerful weekend with friends and with God for deeper worship, faith-stretching experiences, and small group interaction as well as team-building activities and tons of other fun stuff!

Winter Retreat – January 2017

Our winter retreat is a VA district-wide event where students should invite a friend and join hundreds of others for a weekend of snowboarding, skiing, a water park, tubing, awesome music, and powerful messages by dynamic speakers!
