COLLAB is a collaborative of churches, campus groups, and ministries. Collab events are led by ministry leaders from local churches and ministries. All events are led by approved adults and ministry leaders who have been background checked and approved by their church and/or ministry organization.
UYC students are invited and encouraged to attend any and all Collab events.
Collab Night @ Xenia Community Center takes place on the 1st Sunday of each month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. Collab Nights include music, fun, and inspiring life talks about the plan Jesus has for every student. Collab Nights will always follow a Collab Social event as a way for students to invite their disconnected and disinterested friends to a “church” environment once they’ve made some friends at a Collab Social event.
Collab Groups are designed as small groups for students to connect in a personal and casual, setting. Collab Groups include Bible study, discussion, and a great time with your best friends.
Currently, Collab Groups meet on the campus of Athletes in Action (AIA) at 611 Taylor Dr on the 2nd and 3rd Sunday’s of the month from 6:00-7:30pm and are led by Anthony and Vania Purpero. Anthony serves as an AIA missionary to high school students. Feel free to email Anthony HERE with any questions you may have.
Collab Social is designed to create opportunities for students to HAVE FUN. These monthly events are perfect for inviting friends who are disconnected and/or resistant to church. Events like bowling, putt-putt, house parties, and game nights make this a non-threatening comfortable environment for any student to attend. We want EVERY student to invite a friend to attend a Collab Social event.
Collab Campus is designed for students to gather on campus for Bible study. Currently, students meet at Xenia High School in the auditorium before school each Wednesday morning at 6:30am. If you’re a student who’d like to start a Collab Campus group at your school, let us know and we can help you get started.
Collab Campus is led through partnership Athletes in Action. For more details, contact Anthony HERE.
