MOVE is a 5-day high school event held all over the world designed to amplify the call of Jesus on students' lives to become Kingdom Workers. MOVE is by far the biggest event our high school ministry does throughout the year.  If you are currently an 8th - 12th grader you DO NOT want to miss out on this experience! 

Date and Location
This year MOVE is June 17th - 21st.  We will be headed back to Hope College in Holland, Michigan. We will meet at church at 9:30 a.m. on the 17th and will return around 2:30 a.m. on Friday night the 21st (technically Saturday morning).. 

This Years Theme?
The theme for this years summer conference is "To Be Continued" - Students will explore the life of Elijah and help them understand that:

1) They are called into the story of God.
2) They can trust that God can provide b/c He is real.
3) When they despair, God will sustain b/c He is here.
4) They will find purpose when God sends them to reach others.
5) They will continue as God's spirit empowers and his mission endures.

Their story, Elijah's story, God's story...
They're still being written...
Because They're all "To Be Continued."

The total cost is $250.  This cost includes: dinner Monday evening and breakfast, lunch and dinner Tuesday through Friday.
