Porter Ridge High School

6:30 – 7:00     Free Pizza    

7:00 – 8:30   

Speaker:  Kevin Kennedy   (Founder of Generation Students Ministry)


This year our speaker is Kevin Kennedy, founder of Generation Students Ministry. Generation Students events are designed to help the local church as they seek to foster their student’s relationship with Christ.  Through fun games, focused worship, and relevant teaching the goals are always the same:

Grow the student’s relationships…

  • with Christ.

  • with their Church.

  • with their leaders. 


    We will need counselors from the individual churches to help with this Youth Event.





Dear Church Leader, 

As cooler weather sets in, we are looking forward to the warm, sunny days of summer 2018. Swimming in the lake, worshiping with friends, playing gaga in the shade and hanging out at "The Post" are just some of the activities we can’t wait to do all over again next summer. We know your camper can't wait either! Registration is now open and sessions will fill quickly. Secure your campers spot now! 

We are excited to see you in Summer 2018! 

Yours in Christ,
Mark Moore
Summer Camp Director

2018 Fall Youth Retreat

November 2 - 4

Caswell Fall Conference is returning for 2018 with the exciting worship music, grounded teaching, and pointed group study times that make it a joyful experience for youth and their leaders alike.

This year, Jeffrey Dean will be our speaker and the theme for the retreat is Words of Life: Studying the 7 Statements Jesus Made While on the Cross. Jeffrey has prepared companion small group studies that dovetail with the lessons taught in large group, so that youth can dig deeper and communicate with each other on the powerful lessons taught by Jesus and his life.

Check back later in the summer for details on the Musical Guests, as well as other available recreation activities. Early registration is open now.

Wingate University, Wingate NC

Cuddy Arena


We would like to ask all of our churches to begin making plans now for our UBA Youth Feeding Event for 2019. On Wednesday, April 10, 2019 our students will join forces with Wingate University Students to package 50,000 meals that will feed the hungry here in Union County. We hope to have 300 Wingate University students and 300 or more UBA students to participate. Our offering at the UBA Fall Session will go toward this event and we are asking all of our churches to consider sending students to the event and making a contribution to reach our goal. Churches might consider making a line item in their budgets for next year or a love offering early in 2019 to go toward this goal. We would need to raise approximately $10,000 to add to the donation that will be given from the University. Our goal is to package 50,000 meals.  Please help us get this information to your church leaders.

Camp Caraway is a summer camp for boys, sponsored by North Carolina Baptists on Mission, and is accredited by the American Camp Association. All boys are welcome and do not have to be active in a particular church to attend. We also have a Christian expedition program called Christian High Adventure, featuring male-only and coed outdoor adventure and whitewater trips. Our camp is located in the beautiful Uwharrie Mountains, seven miles west of Asheboro, North Carolina. Since 1963 more than 65,000 boys have been challenged toward strengthening their Christian walk at Caraway. We'd love to have your son or group of boys join us!
Camp Caraway bases its program on the Christian idea that each boy is a person of worth, created in the image of God. Each boy is important and each has something unique and significant to contribute to the camp. This idea is applied to every activity and to every aspect of the camp program. The key to North Carolina's furture lies with the campers of today. Our goal is to instill within each camper the desire to be all God created him to be. We hope to see you at Camp Caraway this summer!
