                           the Gospel followed by some incredible food from our “Grapevine Café.

2. Special “Cultivating” Events – These are events geared directly for the non-Christian and provide a great 
                                                opportunity for our Christian students to bring their friends.  They are very 
                                                non-threatening!  (Ex.  Bowling Party, Skiing, Amusement Park Trip, etc)

3. Special “Reap” Events – These are events where the Gospel is clearly presented with an opportunity to 
                                                respond.  It is another excellent opportunity for students to bring their

                                 equipped to be effective ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

                                 students who like to sing, but do not feel comfortable being a part of the Praise

                                 musicals.

                                 made ourselves available to the Lord for Him to use us to impact the lives of others, 
                                 both locally and in foreign lands.  Over the years we have ministered in places like
                                Jamaica, Mexico and Belize.
