Amplify exists to make disciples who make disciples by teaching students the Gospel. We are called to raise up the next generation of church planters, elders, and servants for the Kingdom. We believe this will happen as we partner with parents to lead students into a transformation relationship with Jesus.


WHO WE ARE

Being a middle school or high school student in 2020 took the awkwardness of teenage life up to 11, but just because things are different doesn't mean that God has forgotten them. He is forming a new kingdom and family of teenagers and adults that isn’t separated by popularity, sport, grades, or background. This diverse family called “Amplify” is being united around the good news of God’s love for people and plans to redeem teenagers from the division in the world. We are misfits, forgotten names, and yet we belong… and so do you.
