Mars Hill

Mars Hill Students Collaborative

For the past 5 years, The Collaborative has been instrumental in the growth and training of our staff, volunteers, and local ministry leaders. Each year, we’ve brought in a forward-thinking leader to present on a topic of interest, and this year, we are pleased to host Dr. Chap Clark from Fuller Theological Seminary. Known to youth ministry and parachurch leaders for his book, Hurt 2.0, Dr. Clark has been an important voice in the youth ministry conversation for decades.

The Collaborative is open to Mars Hill Bible Church Student Ministry Volunteers and outside Youth Ministry Teams [Sorry, we will not be able to accomodate individual participants at this year’s event]. Intentionally structured to be experienced within the context of a youth ministry team, the day will feature opportunities to hear from Chap Clark, as well as free time to process the material with your team in between sessions.
