WHAT IS UNITE? Unite is a local missions mini-camp in Shelby County, AL. Functioning through the Shelby Baptist Association, Unite provides the opportunity for church student ministries all across the Birmingham Metro area to partner together in serving our county with the Gospel – physically and spiritually. Students are placed into adult-led “tracks” (evangelism, construction, kids club, etc.) according to their preferences through which they’ll serve within each day. Each morning and night will feature a dynamic worship service with a high quality speaker and band.
WHO IS IT FOR? Grades 6-12
WHEN IS IT? July 11-14, 2018
WHAT IS THE COST? $89 per person BEFORE June 15 // $99 per person AFTER June 15
DO I NEED MY OWN TRANSPORTATION DURING THE WEEK? Yes. Each track will be assigned to a vehicle/van/bus that is provided by churches. Your drivers and modes of transportation will be utilized by Unite to transport students according to Track teams, NOT the local church that brought that vehicle.
