Learn more about our youth ministry.
WOW Urban Ministry is a youth ministry experience that transforms lives and exposes youth and adults to worlds and cultures they may not have yet encountered. Combining faith formation, leadership development, and community service, this camp is for the youth who is ready to experience new things and who is prepared to have his or her worldview shaped further.
What makes WOW distinctive? A camp for teenagers, it is led by teenagers! Guests work alongside team leaders, moving into leadership roles as the week of worship, study, fun, and ministry unfolds.
WOW was created in 2003 by teenagers, for teenagers, and we continue that heritage today. Below are our mission and vision statements. They were created by the youth and adults who started it all.
Come spend a week at WOW this summer and see for yourself!
Christ focused, youth led ministry – providing faith formation, leadership development, and service opportunities in creative collaboration to build a strong, loving community.
Generations of youth leaders discovering gifts, responding to needs, and creating a sacrificially loving community.
“Our world is desperately in need of lovers: people who are building deep, genuine relationships with fellow strugglers along the way, and who actually know the faces of the people behind the issues they are concerned about.”
