moving students up into ministry

Our Vision

What the UP Project is all about

We believe that the Kingdom of God is the central message of Jesus' ministry and the life of the church.  The further we deviate from trying to embody, expand, and embolden the presence of that kingdom the farther we move from God.  The mission of the UP Project is to enable the students and young adults of the Church of God General Conference to produce the fruit of God's kingdom: love, peace, and justice.  

God is love (1 Jn 4:8) and God's presence in this world is felt when we love one another (Jn 13:34).  The peace of Christ reconciles us to God and to one another (Jn 14:27).  To find love and peace, we must have justice (Is 59:8).  It is in this way that our vision is to further the causes of God in this life and in this world so that in all things God may be glorified (1 Cor 10:31).
