WHAT IS BELIEVE?
Believe is a high-energy weekend event for Jr. high students only. It's structured specifically for Jr. high students and is packed with powerful worship and teaching from God's Word.
While at Believe, students not only worship together but also engage in life-challenging discussions with their peers and adult leaders. As they go through the weekend, they discover ways in which God is calling them to be Kingdom workers in their schools, communities and the world.
