BECOMING PART OF OUR FAMILY

The C.I. Design Team is working hard and meeting regularly to brainstorm, plan, and prepare to make C.I. an awesome, memorable, and meaningful experience for you. I am so excited about your interest in attending Christmas Institute (C.I.) this year. I can vividly remember my own experience and the excitement that I felt about being away from home, being with other young people, and learning more about my faith and making it my own. C.I. is truly special to me because it was the place where I not only found a loving community, but also experienced God's unfailing love. Since then, C.I has served as a launch pad for me to follow Him for the rest of my life.  We hope and pray that C.I can be both a transformative and a memorable experience for you.
