Every Sunday Night at the GAYLORD CAMPUS, students will experience powerful worship, fun games and a message from God’s word while hanging out with their friends! Students can also join a Group, where they strengthen their relationships with Christ and their friends, all in one night.


 THE GATHERING 78, is for students in 7th and 8th grade. They meet on SUNDAY NIGHTS @ 4:30pm. We can't wait to meet you!

  Starting an ALPHA group is a great way to engage your friends in questions of faith and meaning 


Today’s teens present an interesting opportunity: While increasingly fewer Gen Z’ers are identifying as Christian, a growing number are open to talking about faith.  In our research on Gen Z, we found 64% of non-Christian teens openly admit they have unanswered questions about faith. They feel comfortable talking about faith matters, even with people who don’t share their point of view. They value peaceful, unforced dialogue where the outcome is simply mutual understanding.  As for their Christian peers? They’re engaging in the conversation too! In fact, 78% of Christian teens have had a conversation about their faith identity with a non-Christian within the last year!  Do you see the opportunity here?  We Do! Starting an ALPHA group is a great way to engage your friends in questions of faith and meaning.   Today you have an opportunity - a responsibility even - to not only enter into the conversation but to resource and equip your friends, and lead these conversations yourselves! This is what Alpha is all about. Use the resources on this page to create the space for ongoing faith conversations with your friends. Email me anytime if you need help getting your ALPHA going:  daveb@miefree.org
