We are in the City of Austin for the City of Austin
Switch is designed to help students SWITCH perspective of God’s mission from simply being a couple dates on a calendar to living a lifelong purpose for His glory.
In a unique approach, we’re part mission trip, part conference, part camp.
God made us to worship Him with everything – to live a life on mission by declaring and demonstrating the gospel of Jesus Christ. No matter our age or where we live, we’re called to worship Him in joy! And we believe God wants youth to worship Him and seek the gospel-centered restoration of their city, their neighborhood, their school – all the time, wherever they are.
A little bit of Camp We’ve seen youth groups come together time and time again at camp, bonding as they worship together, eat together, play games together, and laugh (a lot) together. The camp aspect of Switch allows youth groups to come together in a way they wouldn’t have a chance to otherwise – they get to live life together for just one week and learn what it really means to be a community.
A little bit of conference It’s so important to understand what the Bible says about mercy and mission because of the gospel. Through large and small group sessions, youth will be equipped to return home and care for the people in their city, their neighborhood, their school – wherever God has them. He cares about these people and places, and He teaches us how to care through His Word.
A little bit of Mission trip As part of Restore Strategies’ vision and strategy, we help youth understand what it means to be for the city wherever they live through declaring and demonstrating the gospel to the city of Austin. We partner with dozens of nonprofit organizations across the city year-round, and during Switch, youth serve alongside these organizations, from helping clean up a school to serving a meal at a homeless shelter to teaching Bible stories at a neighborhood event.
SWITCH is for grades 7th-12th.
We will be staying on the cheap by sleeping on the floors at a downtown church here in Austin.
We will be serving the greater Austin area to all the way to Round Rock.
The teaching is awesome.
The work is invigorating.
The music is powerful.
I hope you can join us.
