Challenge 8 is our fourth Family Milestone, designed to equip parents and their eighth grade student with communication skills and conversation topics that will cultivate and strengthen their relationship through their next life phase.

This milestone includes a Challenge 8 Winter BBQ on January 25th and a Challenge 8 Weekend Event on March 27th & 28th.

The Challenge 8 Winter BBQ helps families learn effective communication skills, setting the stage for the Weekend Event, and equipping parents and students for future life conversations.

The Challenge 8 Weekend Event* is the culmination of the milestone. Parents and students attend the weekend together where they laugh, play, learn and serve together. This is a great opportunity to pause, share experiences and strengthen relationships as they move into the high school years. This weekend ends with a time of blessing.

Registration for this Milestone was open January 5 – January 21st but is now currently closed.
