Great Adventure

Every summer, we pour into the lives of thousands of people in our city and our world through the Great Adventure as part of our mission to saturate Greater Austin with the love of Jesus. Hundreds of local students have the opportunity to step into leadership roles and serve their local community through fun, gospel-sharing clubs, and global mission trips. You can make a difference by being a part of what God is already doing in our city and around the world to bring people into His kingdom.
