At XJ, eXperience Jesus, we want students to have an encounter with the Living Christ. We want them to KNOW Jesus more deeply, LOVE Jesus more passionately, and SHARE Jesus more generously!

At XJ, students will be equipped to share the gospel, and they will be sent out on the streets to share the good news with others before they are sent home to share the good news with their friends. But at XJ, we want students to understand that the gospel is more than a message. The gospel is a person. Jesus said, “I am the way!” He IS the gospel. Students are inviting their friends into a saving relationship with Jesus.

As XJ changes the hearts of your students, we believe it will change the culture of your youth ministry, fanning the flames of disciple-making as your students are launched into a life of mission.

  • Regular Registration, March 1 through May 31, $495
  • Late Registration, June 1 – July 5, $555 

We will be staying in Moody Dorms, double occupancy. Food and lodging is provided for the time you are here (minus Monday night/Saturday morning, and one other night during the week that is meant to be a time for you to explore the city with your group).
