MIX 2022

JULY 11-15 | Marion, IN



MIX is a four-day summer event specifically designed for students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades. It is intentionally crafted in ways that will engage middle school students through tactile, interactive, and fun activities coupled with Bible-based teaching and small group interaction.

MIX is an event that understands middle school students need their own experience. This age group is at a unique time in their lives – they’re growing and learning differently than any other age group.

They are still young enough to need to play, but old enough to start understanding some core ideals that will stay with them the rest of their lives. For this reason, MIX isn’t designed for high school students or for preteens. It’s specifically designed for sixth, seventh and eighth grade students – it’s their chance to be exactly who they are: to play, listen and learn as themselves.

It’s also created for adult leaders to build relationships with students that will last long after the MIX experience. At MIX, your students will come to understand their identity in God’s Kingdom and be challenged to embrace the Kingdom work He has prepared for them.


 

“I began my journey with Jesus at Camp Hammer in Boulder Creek, Ca. I remember hearing the Gospel for the first time and knowing that I wanted to go to heaven.

It was a few years later, when I was 13, that I had an unmistakable experience at Heavenly Hills Christian Camp which led me to rededicate my life to Jesus.

And my life has truly never been the same.

I believe in the power that a week of camp can have on a teenager. I’ve never seen it done as well as at MIX. It’s incredible. It’s beautiful. It’s life-changing.”

This year’s theme

Jesus came to earth with a message. His message was broadcast in many ways—conversations with his friends, sermons to the crowds, and miracles healing the hurting. Jesus also proclaimed his message through stories—tales with hidden meanings and deeper application to life. Jesus’ parables tell us so much about who he is and life in his kingdom. When we hear Jesus’ stories, we are forever changed. Our lives are given purpose, meaning, and a mission. Changed lives become a BROADCAST about him to the world.
