Middle School Ministry Campference | October 4-6, 2019
March 4, 2011


We’re Instigating a Revolution in Youth Ministry. We serve individual youth workers with coaching, events, resources and other stuff. And we serve organizations (church, ministries and businesses) with consulting, innovative resource development, and marketing services. check out our website here for more info.

The Middle School Ministry Campference is our baby, the first event created by The Youth Cartel.

We partnered with some of our favorite junior high ministry resourcing organizations for all aspects of this awesome event.


Christ In Youth has been providing events, missions trips and resources that amplify Christ’s call on students’ lives in partnership with the local church for 50 years. More than 80,000 students and leaders attend at least one of CIY’s 100 events held throughout 20 countries each year. CIY partners with the local church to help call students to a maturing knowledge of Christ in preparation for Kingdom work. CIY has two different events that are specifically targeted toward middle school and Jr. high students.

Believe is a high-energy weekend event designed specifically for Jr. high students. It’s packed with powerful worship and teaching from God’s Word. The 2017/2018 Believe tour will visit 12 cities across the U.S. For more information, visit ciy.com/believe.

MIX is a four-day summer event designed specifically for sixth, seventh and eighth grade students. Students who attend will come to understand their own spiritual formation and grow as Kingdom workers through dynamic worship, engaging activities, recreation and small group interaction. For more information, visit ciy.com/mix.

Developmentally relevant for MIDDLE SCHOOLERS

Although God’s story remains the same, every age group understands and responds to the Good News in their own way.

If you hope to translate the essence of Scripture to the heart of a middle schooler, you need to understand how they are wired. A 6th grader has different spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental needs than a ninth grader. Biblical truth needs to be presented in a way that is personally relevant if you want it to stick. That’s why Orange has partnered with the Phase Project to conduct hundreds of hours of research, interviews, surveys, and conversations with leaders who invest in the lives of kids and teenagers. Our writers, editors, video producers and creative directors continually seek new, innovative ways present Biblical truth in a way that’s theologically sound and developmentally appropriate.
