Teens | The Rush is a place where students are loved, accepted and encouraged to play active roles in each other’s life stories. Together we engage in transformational experiences that broaden and deepen their relationships with God and each other with the goal of emerging as powerful women and men of Christ. Here teens are mentored by godly leaders who encourage the next generation to step into the roles they have been called to play. We share in each other’s struggles and joys; revitalize our communities; and care for the unwanted, unreached, and unengaged.

Transformed by the grace of God to share Christ’s love to a broken world.
The teenage years can be some of the most exciting and challenging that we ever face. Here at The Rush, we want to be a place where teenagers will be accepted and loved for who they are as they are challenged to grow in their knowledge, love, and passion for Jesus! We accomplish this through fun and compelling environments on Sundays and Wednesdays, through our retreats, service outreaches, and mission trips. Last summer we took an awesome group of teens to serve and share the love of Christ in Chicago. It was amazing to watch the growth, passion and excitement in our teenagers as they were used by God to reach our world. We desire this for everyone who comes in the doors! We invite you to come and check us out… and jump in with the Rush!
