Senior Trip

Senior Trip




Our student ministry desires to see students grow in their relationship with Jesus and be taught how to follow Jesus after High School. Unfortunately, the statistics show that roughly 70% of Christians leave their faith during the their first year after High School. The Senior Roadtrip is a retreat with the primary goal of directly addressing this issue. This retreat is designed to equip seniors in their relationship with Jesus through intentional times of teaching and conversation as well as provide an atmosphere for Seniors to grow in their relationship with their peers.
