Each year we prayerfully consider whether to host another Youth Bible School. We are very excited about plans for spring of 2016 - only a little over 1 month away! We are anticipating singing, praying, witnessing, fellowshipping, growing & hearing message after message of solid Scriptural teaching

Applications of married couples willing to participate under the same guidelines as other students will be considered if space is available.

Please knowthat if you have a desire to grow in your walk with Christ you are welcometo apply, it will be our intent to call all of us higher, but not to unnecessarily intimidate anyone.
