our dream

We provide a place for students to belong.We have fun while we learn, serve and do life together in authentic community. Get to know us as we help you to get to know Jesus and why a relationship with Him matters.

What can I Expect?

This is where it’s AT! AMPLIFY/TRIBE
When your student comes to AT- Amplify or Tribe they will be welcomed in! We can’t wait to meet them. All students register at our computer check in stations located in front of the Centre located inside door C by one of our great volunteers. They will grab pizza or a snack and then head into the Centre to hangout or play 9 square, volleyball or basketball. During Amplify or Tribe students will laugh, learn and during Large group and have the freedom to ask questions about faith and life in their Life Group. Life groups are small groups based on age, grade and gender. AT Amplify/Tribe we want students to encounter community, grow in faith and learn to share the hope of Jesus where they live, work and play.
