RISE is relational, intentional, servant-minded and encouraging.  Youth at RISE will learn the good news of what the Lord has done for them, how to serve those in need and be given the opportunity to go out and share what they've learned with those around them.

RISE LOGO BREAKDOWN

Two arrows pointing upward indicate our position of looking upward to the Lord.
The top arrow is bold to represent our primary affection for the Lord. The bottom arrow is representing how leaders while partnering with parents, will orient their life around serving and praising the Lord – they also seek to teach youth to do this as well through RISE.
