Alive gathers hundreds of middle and high school students together for three days of teaching, music & worship, community building, late night campfires, and so much more.
Reggie Dabbs and Preston Centuolo will challenge students to KNOW IT. LIVE IT. SHARE IT. Throughout the three days, students will be taught on knowing who God is, living a life that reflects Him, and sharing the love of Jesus with others.
What better way to encounter Jesus than through song & worship? Throughout the week students will hear NEEDTOBREATHE, Elevation Worship, Switchfoot, MercyMe, for KING & COUNTRY, Crowder, Matt Maher, Andy Mineo, Jordan Feliz, Social Club Misfits, RED, and many others.
At Alive, leaders will have dedicated free time to connect with their students and other church families to encourage relationship and community building. This time with students to process questions or share moments of growth is formative in their walk with Jesus and their understanding of Christ-centered community.
Each night, bring your group to the Comedy Club and enjoy some comedic relief with Tim Hawkins, John Crist and 321 Improv. We’ll have our Late Night Café open with drinks and snacks and students can get some late night laughs.
What fun is a summer at Alive without the Youth Olympics? Join other churches in a competition of volleyball, obstacle course, and more in our annual competition.
Alive is the perfect place for students to unplug from social media, focus in on the experience, and encounter Jesus without any distractions.

No problem. We have a ton of hotels nearby for your group to utilize.
