High School & College

The Mix is all about leading our high school and college students toward becoming spiritually mature young men and women. We desire for our students to take ownership of their lives and their own spiritually walk with Christ. We’ve set 5 key practices that we call “The 5 to Thrive” that serves as a guide for our students.

At our events, we enjoy a free lunch coupled with a group discussion in the first hour. During the second hour, we plan fun and sometimes elaborate group activities and just hang out together!

The 5 to Thrive

1. Attend church (Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV)

“And let us consider how we may spur one another toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

2. Attend The Mix (1 John 1:7 NIV)

“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.” We believe there are benefits in Godly fellowship. The Mix provides an outlet for fellowship and support for students from others facing similar challenges in life.

3. Serve in the church (1 Corithians 12:27 NIV)

“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” We all have different gifts and roles in the body of Christ, but we believe we all have a role. We encourage students to find their gifts and use them for the good of God’s Kingdom.

4. Join our daily reading plans on The Bible app (Matthew 6:22-23 NIV)

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness…” We encourage our students to keep our eyes on God’s Word daily so that we can be full of light and not darkness.

5. Lead others to connect with Christ (Matthew 28:19 NIV)

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…”
