Upcoming Events

Heirborne Conference Survey

We are looking forward to the second annual Heirborne Youth Conference currently scheduled on November 13-15. We are in good communication with Life Center Church (the host church of the conference) and their leadership. They have spoken with the conference site, Spooky Nook, and have been given the "religious exemption" to hold the event at full attendance.

As they look at planning the event, there are certain registration minimums required to make the event possible. We would like to know what your thoughts are regarding your student's involvement in the Heirborne Youth Conference this year. We of course are using wisdom in the process of planning the event, as with everything we do, and we value your input as we make some of our decisions. Please take a moment to answer the questions in this quick survey!

Day of Hope 2020

Day of Hope 2020 is a free one-day training and ministry experience in our own community. This event is designed to equip and empower students to impact the world with love and hope.

This is a day of ministry training hosted by Urban Hope Training Center designed to give us practical tips and principles to make evangelism simple. We will also have real ministry experiences with people in own community. The goal the for the Day of Hope is to connect with each other, allow God's power to flow through us, and make a real impact in York!

Day of Hope takes place on Saturday, October 10th from 9:00am - about 3:30pm. We will start promptly at 9:00am at Connection Christian Church. As of right now, we will be going to downtown York to the Central Market. We will be doing a prayer walk and praying for people in our community. If you would like to participate in Day of Hope 2020 and see God do amazing things through you that day, please register here by September 30th:

Sunday Nights || Elevate


No matter where you are in life, our Sunday night gatherings are designed for you. You can expect to experience God through music led by students, relevant teaching, and small group discussion for deeper conversation.

You will be challenged whether you are a student that grew up in the church or if you are a student that has never set foot in a church before. You can expect to be immediately welcomed into our family, while at the same time you will be challenged to take the first step toward trading your will for God’s Will.

Our Values

At Elevate, we strive for excellence in events and programs, however building relationships is the primary focus. We believe that being a people-focused ministry will raise the personal development of the individual gifts of the students and adults. If this happens, then it will drive people toward spiritual maturity. This, in time, will create leaders who will have the ability to minister to others and assist in the vision of bringing revival to the world we live in.
Elevate is more than just ‘hanging-out’ with students for us. We want students to come to a realization that life isn’t all about them and they were put on this Earth, at this exact time, for a much bigger purpose. In order for students to become fully devoted followers of Christ, we do everything we can to not only tell them about Jesus, but also show them what it means to live for Him.
Jesus came to bring people freedom, and he did that by building relationships with others. We are not called to live by a certain set of rules of ‘Do’s and Don’ts’, but we are called to love others and be in relationship with them. As we come along side others they will begin to see Christ in us and will be changed by the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
