Retreats: We offer six retreats a year. Funds raised helps to offset the cost of the retreat, helps cover the cost of volunteers, and provides numerous scholarships for teens to attend.
Conferences: We attend an annual Leadership Conference who's cost is covered in full by Casino Night funds. Upperclassman teens enter an application process to be able to attend the conference. We also are ale to offer scholarships towards the Steubenville Atlanta Conference.

Relational Ministry: Casino Night funds allow the Youth Ministry Staff and Core volunteers to attend local games, matches, concerts, plays, ceremonies, and shows.
Core Development: Funds help support the development and formation of our volunteer Core Team so that they can better lead teens towards Christ.
Outside Speaker & Musicians: Funds help us to bring in professional speakers and musicians so that the teens are able to hear from different voices and perspectives.
