Are you ready? Most of us are dying for a life worth living. We want our lives to matter.  Somehow we know that there has got to be more than what we’re experiencing.

Core is a program for students who are longing for something more; More community, more growth, more understanding, more leadership, more impact, more knowledge, more fun, more faith, and more God. This is a program set up for those who want to grow and make a difference in the world. If God is about bringing change and transformation, and we believe he is, then we want to be a part of it! The question for you is this: Are you ready?

Core is open for students in Grades 9-12 and a separate program for students, Grades 7-8. We will propel students  to a greater understanding of why we are here and how God truly wants us to live life.
