We seek to exalt Jesus Christ by reaching all high school and middle school students with the gospel, connecting them with other Christians, and by helping them grow in their faith
Every Wednesday night | 6-7:30pm
These weekly gatherings are designed for middle school and high school students. Each week we meet for worship, teaching, and small group discussion. Our gatherings start in the gym each week. We have a large team of college and adult volunteers who help lead during discussion groups. If you’re a youth student in the High Country, we’d love to have you join!
From time to time we get together to do something different. This can include everything from a trip to Carowinds to bowling.

WHAT? Join us for a two-day conference with thought leaders from across the state as we discover how media is changing our brains, beliefs, and relationships.
WHY? Media is dramatically changing the way we interact with the world around us. As we scroll, we feed the algorithms that reduce us to seperate parts of the same equation—Consumers & Creators. We’re all precisely being defined by what we do online.
But, what happens to a generation when we begin to regard humans, created in the image of God, as products to be consumed?
And did God design us for the digital age or should we retreat into the ark as the waters of cancel-culture rise?
What should we do?
How should we respond to the fact that each of us has more communicative power and potential in our pockets than any world leader in human history?
These are trying times and with great power comes great responsibility!
Summer Camp 2021
July 5-9 | $250 | Please email JP for space available.
Summer camp is open to all current 6th grade through 12th grade students.
Every aspect of the summer camp week—from chapel to group games to meals—is designed to help our students grow deeper in their walk with God, closer to one another, and wider in their impact for Christ. Summer camp’s biblical, culturally relevant teaching is presented in a humorous and applicable fashion. The small group format even gets our adult leaders in on the fun and helps our student ministry bond together, and Look Up Lodge’s top-quality summer camp counselors are excited about seeing our students grow spiritually.
Trips & Retreats
We think it’s important to get out of town! Several times a year we load up and head out for fun weekends, mission projects, or just fun road trips.
