REd Culture Students

When Jesus spoke, He created a culture so important that those words are recorded in red. Red Culture exists not to change culture, but to create a new culture inspired by Jesus' words.

Red Culture exists to equip and encourage the local church and her leadership to create a culture that will cultivate the gifts of the next generation and empower them to stand upon our shoulders. Through strategic leadership initiatives, events, experiences, training, coaching, community outreach and mission, we are partnering with the local church to invest in the next generation.

Red Culture youth hosts Fine Arts Conference each April, Fall Conference each November, and Camp each June.

Speed the Light (STL) is the missions giving and discipleship arm of Red Culture.
