RECKLESSLY LOVED BY HIM.
LIVING RECKLESSLY FOR HIM.
We lead high school students to encounter the God who loved them regardless of the cost.
Believing it’s the reckless love of God that compels us to live a reckless life for Jesus: following and sharing Him regardless of the cost.
We do this by creating irresistible envirmonents that high school students love coming back to regardless of where they are on their faith journey.
While lots of things get them through the door, at the end of the day, we believe the most irresistible thing we have to offer is life with Jesus.

SUNDAY NIGHTS | 5:30-8:30P
SMALL GROUP NITE
ONE SUNDAY NIGHT/MONTH | 7-9P
We get together every Sunday night to eat great food, meet new friends, and talk about things that matter with people who care about you! What’s not to like?! We’ll have dinner, games, worship, a message, and small groups…See ya there!
One Sunday night a month, we take a break from regular programming to connect as small groups and just hang out! We believe deep friendship is one of the best ways to know and enjoy God and love creating space for true friendship to happen!
This is for any student looking for more: more fun, more connection, more faith. Like Jesus’ call to his disciples, the only thing he required was a commitment to follow him and a willingness to learn. We’ll take a deeper dive into who God created us to be, what difference we can make in the world, and how we become lifelong followers of Jesus. You can’t follow Jesus or find out more if you don’t get up off the couch and go. We’re inviting our students to GO Reckless!
2nd, 3rd, & 4th Wednesdays | 7-9p
3RD WEDNESDAY | 5:30-8:30p
Join us once a month as we make a tangible difference in our community. We join the rest of GEBC to provide a hot meal, a place of connection, and a food pantry to families who need it. GO RCKLSS will be serving at this night but you don’t have to be part of GO RCKLSS in order to join us!
DR: June 11-18| PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C.: June 15-22
Don’t miss out on our amazing summer mission trips! We’re headed back to Pawleys Island, S.C. with LeaderTreks for our second time and across the Atlantic to Croatia with Josiah Venture for the very first time!
Every summer we take students all across the globe following Jesus to bring hope and joy to the ends of the earth. These trips go down as some of the most faith-building and life-changing weeks our students’ lives. They will be stretched, pushed, and challenged, and on the other side of it, encounter a purpose and God worth giving up everything for.
