Great Xscape 2018


Are you in high school? Do you want to spend a week of your summer white water rafting, swimming, competing in games and tournaments, and relaxing in a beautiful oasis? Then Great Xscape is for you. It’s also for you if you have questions about Jesus and want to know more about Him, if you’re feeling tired in your walk and need some encouragement, if you love Jesus and want to follow Him, and anywhere in between. We’re excited to get away with you.
