We believe that youth ministry thrives at the intersection of community and discipleship, where students are formed together into the likeness of Christ.

A thriving youth ministry is oriented around students’ formation as life-long disciples of Jesus. Over the duration of students’ involvement in the high school ministry, our hope and aim is to equip them to engage deeply in Christian community for the sake of Christian discipleship.

Summer Camp

GENERATE Camp by YM360
July 17-21, 2023 | UNC Asheville | Asheville, NC 

We will join youth from all over the region on the campus of UNC Asheville for Bible study, group prayer, worship nights, fun games, bonding time, and much more! We will stay in dorms on the campus!

There are 10 spots available for Middle School Students and 10 spots available for High School Students. Spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis with a waitlist. The registration deadline is Thursday, April 6.

The fee per student is $425.00. A deposit of $100.00 will be due with registration. This cost includes the camp fee, transportation, and meals for the entire trip.

We never want cost to be a barrier to participation for any of our students. The Youth Ministry has a scholarship fund, so please reach out if we can be of assistance!

All participants will receive a free camp t-shirt!
