On one evening, your group will visit the Exhibition Coal Mine, including an old time town (complete with a Company Store and coal museum) and an underground coal mine tour. Other evening activities include exploring the a state park, attending a local youth-led worship service and helping host a community cookout.  YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2018.

We teenagers + We communities

Teenagers need to encounter Jesus outside their normal context to deepen their faith and broaden their perspectives. Plus, communities need to be valued—not as mere recipients but as partners who have stories worth sharing in.

When we bring the two together, incredible things happen.
