WHAT IS MIX?
 

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 different than any other age group.

They’re still young enough to need to play, but old enough to start understand 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.
 
 
WHY JR. HIGH STUDENTS?

Jr. high students are at a unique moment in their lives. They’re growing and learning differently than any other age group. They’re still young enough to need to play, but they’re old enough to start grabbing onto some core ideals that will stay with them the rest of their lives.

A lot of times Jr. high students have more pressures on them to perform and more demands on their attention than any other age group. They’re expected to be older than they actually are. At Believe we want to give these students the chance to have fun and enjoy spending time with their peers, while also challenging them with age-appropriate ideals that will help them embrace Christ’s call on their lives to be Kingdom workers. Believe is their chance to be exactly who they are – to play, listen and learn as themselves.
