our dream

We want every student to have a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, connect through authentic community, fearlessly make Jesus known.

What can I Expect?

This is where it’s AT! AMPLIFY/TRIBE

Community is everything and that is what Tribe and Amplify are, a community of students following Jesus together.  No matter who you are or where you are on your journey towards Christ, you are welcome into the community.  Join us on Sunday and Wednesday nights when we gather to live real life with each other.  
Middle and High school can be tough, don’t do it alone.  Let’s do it together!

High School – It might be winter outside, but it’s Summer in our hearts.  Come hang out for a night that will cure those winter blues and give you a taste of Summer on March 7th, 6-8pm.

What’s coming up



New Series: Waitlisted

          We live in a world that wants everything as fast as Amazon Prime delivery.  Whether that is the needs/desires we have, answers to our questions, or even our purpose in life.  We want things fast, but sometimes God has us wait and doesn’t tell us why.  This series helps us talk through why that is and what we are supposed to do when we are waitlisted.

Amplify Memory verse:
Ephesians 4:1-3



  • The Lord’s Prayer

              We are meeting at Urban Air from 6-8pm this Wednesday March 3rd.  CLICK HERE to register and fill out the waiver so you’re ready to go at 6pm.  See you there!

  • Tribe Memory verse:
    John 13:34-35

Hey adults, we’d love to have you partner with us as we disciple our students! You could help with events, help Katie with office work/programming, or even co-leading a Life Group.  Click the link below to get more information.

College/High School students, are you interested in leading students in Middle School?  Do you love hanging out with students at all nighters?  Having life changing conversations at winter camp? Discipling students through the years of middle school you survived?  We’d love to have you on our team!  Contact Derek.
