Middle + High School

Middle + High School

We aim to cultivate a healthy environment characterized by life-giving relationships amongst our students, in order that we might wrestle with the realities of who Jesus is and what He is up to.

We want to not only gather as a community, but to go out into the Durham, Chapel Hill area and love it back to life. We want each student to be dignified in their humanity. We want each student to have their questions answered thoughtfully. We want each student to know there is a God who loves them as they are.
