Youth Community Explosion

YCE logo-07During the summer of 2012, we began a more coordinated effort to reach out to our surrounding community by hosting monthly Movie and Popcorn Nights, remote tailgates, harvest festivals and other events at our headquarters. This allowed us more time to get to know our neighbors and truly to begin building relationships.

June 8-July 24, 2015, we hosted our first Youth Community Explosion Camp, “Ignite!”.  This 3-day per week program continues to grow and reach 6th-8th grade youth.  “Ignite!” includes Bible Study, tutoring, activities, field trips and service projects.  Programming runs Mondays, Tuesdays, and  Thursdays. If you are in the 6th-8th grade, plan to join us! Also, please contact us if you are interested in being a part of this local ministry.

On February 22, 2016, our youth were on the way to a one-day retreat when our 15-passenger van caught fire. Everyone escaped safely, but the van was a total loss. It was a traumatic experience for all of us, even those who were not in the van. As most of the youth were panicking, one of the girls spoke up and said, “Y’all, we are so blessed. Nobody was hurt and God is with us.” She expressed what all of us felt.
