Genesis: 2016

Genesis is an event for Sr. High students, where leaders and students can worship honestly and grow spiritually. Students will be given an opportunity to lead and serve in various ways, grow together as a group, and connect with the other youth that have all converged on The Grand Traverse Resort from around the Great Lakes Region.

March 4-6, 2016         

NOTE:  All the info currently on the site (other than the date) is from the 2014 event (registration, volunteer, talent, etc).  Our design team is currently working on all the details for the 2016 event, and we will update the site in the coming months.

BUT: You can check out videos from our 2014 event here!


Leaders, expect your registration packets in September. Registration will begin in November, but it’s never too early to start getting your students excited.

This event doesn’t run without the help of  a small army of volunteers. They help with things like onsite registration, elevators, merchandise booths, and much more! If you would like to get involved let us know!
