Students following Jesus together.

Grades 6-12

This ministry exists to walk alongside students and their families as they follow Jesus. We are constantly working to connect students to Jesus, help them grow deeper in relationship with Jesus, and equip them to impact the world with Jesus. We do that primarily through groups and classes which you can read more about below!

A series that walks teens through Luke & Acts

From Alpha and The Bible Project: "Life Revealed" is a nine-part series that walks teens through Luke and Acts, provokes curiosity around the person of Jesus, and creates an accessible way for young people to read and understand scripture. This collaboration between Alpha and the Bible Project equips you to help young people discover and develop a relationship with Jesus.

Supernova will be a memorable and powerful week for Middle Schoolers to have fun, build friendships, and take their next steps with Jesus!

Students (entering grades 6-9) will gather at the church three of the four evenings for engaging teaching, food, all kinds of games, prizes, and more! On the last night of Supernova, students will head off campus for a surprise end-of-week celebration!

Supernova will be June 5-8 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM each night at Worthington Christian Church, with the exception of Saturday. Since our plans for Saturday are a surprise, the exact times for that day will be announced soon.

Special Event for High School students:


Located on college campuses across the nation, MOVE provides a program for 30,000 high school students every summer. Students are challenged through intense, interactive worship, dynamic preaching, small group study and community building.

Students at MOVE not only learn and worship together – they spend quality time with their church youth groups, discovering ways that God will use them to impact the world.

MOVE is more than just another conference or camp – it’s an experience! It’s an all-inclusive event providing food, lodging, recreational activities and an amazing program. Adult leaders are provided small group materials prior to the event, and then meet with CIY staff each morning to go over each day’s lesson. And MOVE curriculum is made available to all groups after the event. This includes curriculum that will take your students deeper into MOVE’s theme for four more weeks.

MOVE is committed to helping students take their mountaintop experiences beyond the event by challenging them to become Kingdom workers. To encourage that commitment, each student has the opportunity to open a Kingdom Worker Card on the last day of MOVE. On that card is a challenge to complete something over the next year, no matter how difficult the task. Click here to learn more about Kingdom workers.

CIY MOVE is Monday, June 24 to Saturday, June 29!

The early bird cost for MOVE is $300/student before February 28; includes transportation, lodging and food at the event. After February 28, the cost is $350/student. After April 30 the cost is $400, so register early!  There is a $50 deposit required at the time of registration.
