The purpose of the GO PROJECT is to engage kids, students and parents in serving and making an impact on the world around them. The goal of every project we are doing is to make a difference through action. Through these experiences, we anticipate “life-changing” opportunities for every student involved.

The family team has prayerfully and strategically planned a variety of trips and opportunities for students in grades 4-12. These include specifically designed trips and conferences, several international trips for students ready to take the next step, and an opportunity to serve at KidsGiG this summer. Take the next step in your faith by taking action in the GO PROJECT.

James 1:22 says,
“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”
