XLR8 YOUTH
We are dedicated to loving teens & encountering God through intentional relationships.

Our Mission

At XLR8, our mission is to help teens do life. We are devoted to loving teens & providing them with a judgment free space where they can be themselves, deal with life issues, grow as a person, and encounter God.

Through our exceptionally talented leadership team and carefully crafted events, youth will have the opportunity to enjoy life, participate in exciting activities, hear challenging messages, develop positive friendships, and encounter God in new ways.

Our Core Values

A place to belong.

We aren't just a place that's fun and exciting, we are a place where everyone is always welcome & accepted. Period.

A place to be loved.

No matter who you are, what you've done, or what you believe, we promise we will always love you - no questions asked.

A place to grow.

Each person is gifted with different skills & passions, and we want to help you find those, grow in them, and use them effectively.

A place to encounter God.

God is moving in powerful ways in our nation, and we want to see Him do something incredible in each of your lives.
