High School Retreat

CIY Move 2017

Monday, June 26 thru Saturday, July 1
Holland, Michigan

MOVE is a five day, high school only event, designed to help students catch a vision for the work of Christ in and around them! We believe that God has called every single person to use their gifts, abilities and sphere of influence to impact His Kingdom. You may be on the cusp of hearing God in a fresh, new way - or maybe even for the first time ever. This summer could change everything! MOVE could be a week you'll remember forever.

Every summer has a story - yours starts at Parkview! Register for MOVE today!

Check in at the Orland Park Campus on Monday, June 26 at 1:00 pm! We'll return to the Orland Park Campus at 10:30 am on Saturday, July 1.

The cost is $395.00 until Sunday, April 30. After that, the price increases to $450. Registration closes on Monday, June 5.

They will assist in the villages with an array of activities ranging from VBS with the children, leading in youth and adult Bible studies, assisting with medical clinics, and working alongside E3 with their borehole maintenance of wells.

High School Students

High School Ministry

High School Ministry at Parkview is ministry by high schoolers for high schoolers. Whether a freshman or a senior, high schoolers from the region find friendship and faith development at Parkview.

With weekly discussion groups in homes (thoroughly screened and background checked), our Bible studies feel more like discussion with friends over coffee or Cokes. Our regular large group nights focus on growing faith through worship, serving, and outreach. And our high schoolers are involved in designing every aspect of what we do.

High School Small Groups

High School small groups meet at pre-screened homes in the Parkview area.

If you are interested in joining a small group this fall, please fill out the registration form below.
