June 28th – July 2nd 2021, in Cedarville, OH


Hello parents and students! The staff of Grace Gathering Youth is so excited to be able to have the opportunity to be able to have a summer camp this year.
This summer the students will be spending their time at Cedarville University which is located in Cedarville, OH from June 28-July 2, 2021. It will be a week full of growing in faith and growing closer to our brothers and sisters in Christ. There are climbing walls, basketball courts, snack bars and a coffee shop for the students to enjoy during this life changing week. At the end of the week we will be going to Kings Island Theme Park for the students to enjoy some rides.

We are looking forward to having a great time together! If there are any questions please contact your youth site leader!

Youth Missional Communities


A Target is a youth missional community, and we have several across the greater Fort Wayne area. Each Target is a group of students and adults who see themselves as a family, who have a predictable pattern of meeting each week, and who are missionally-driven to reach other teens with the gospel.

Each week, they meet for a meal or snack, enjoy hanging out, and invite other students who are open to knowing more about Jesus. As Targets grow, their goal is to multiply into more missional communities.

Most of our Targets are student led. We currently have 13 Targets in the greater Fort Wayne area and have seen many students come to faith in Jesus!  Our goal in the next year is to pray for 10 more emerging Targets by 2020.

FAQs for Parents

Will my son or daughter be welcomed?

Yes! We know that visiting a new group of people can be a little outside people’s comfort zone. We work hard at making sure your son or daughter feels welcomed by adults as well as other students.

What do you teach?

We meet students where they are and create space for them to meet God through worship, the Bible, and each other. Because Jesus asked us to disciple others, we place a high emphasis on knowing God’s voice and responding to what He is saying. We use Jesus’ life as an example and train teens to live and lead like him. At youth gatherings, we pattern each week to represent one of three aspects of Jesus’ life: UP (worship), IN (serving), and OUT (evangelism).

Is it safe for my son/daughter to be a part of Grace Gathering Youth?

Absolutely! We interview and perform background checks for all of our leaders. On youth trips, we have a 1 to 7, adult to teens ratio. We take seriously the responsibility of keeping our kids safe and reducing the risk of harm to your student.

Is there opportunity to fundraise for trips?

Yes! We work hard at making sure your son or daughter is able to go on our Summer trips and Winter Blast Weekend! We try to keep costs as low as possible, but we realize that finances can be a burden, especially if you have more than one student involved. Each year there are opportunities for kids to fund-raise, do extra jobs for others at Grace Gathering, and qualify for scholarships for families with multiple students.

Please contact us! Don’t let cost keep your son/daughter from participating!
