GR District Survive or Thrive Youth Event-Registration is now Closed!

Youth ministry leaders all know that as the school year kicks off, many of our youth find themselves simply SURVIVING, unsure of what might come ahead.

  • What would it look like if this year was different?

  • What would it take for youth to THRIVE?

⇒ ⇒ ⇒ ⇒ The first step to making that happen is the Survive or Thrive youth event! ⇐ ⇐ ⇐ ⇐

We invite you to join other youth groups and leaders from UMC’s in the GR District (and beyond) to connect, have fun at the 3 Mile Project, and meet new people to THRIVE with! This event will help to build momentum for your year, and foster important connections with the youth and adult leaders!

Youth Leaders the adult:youth ratio is 1:6 so plan accordingly. Any adult helpers you bring need to be cleared through your church’s system. Please contact the district office if you DO NOT have enough adult volunteers, but have a group of youth coming. The minimum cleared adult per group is 1.
