We will leave at 2:00 PM in the afternoon on Friday, October 20th. We will return by 4:00 PM on Sunday, October 22nd.

The retreat costs $63 per teen, but you can email Joel and let him know if you'd like a scholarship for the retreat. We'd love to take a big group to the retreat to get the school-year off to a great start.

Vertical Encounters is our High School youth group serving the 9th through 12th graders at BLH.  This group is led by Joel Hansen, our Youth Minister, as well as Matt and Kelsey, our student leaders.

We exist to: 

  • live in community with other teens 

  • be active members of our church 

  • develop a lifestyle of walking with Christ every day.

On Sunday nights, we look forward to gathering together with other Christian teens.  It is a great time to connect through snacks and games, and to discuss issues that are looming large in our lives.  We do our best to blend in solid Biblical study with real-life applications on the topics in front of us each week.  

Join us for a lively discussion about faith, friends and how Christ encounters us in the midst of our everyday lives.

If you haven't already, please complete our online Youth Registration form so we can best prepare for the year.  We have many events planned, check out our upcoming events below, we hope you can join us.  

Any questions?  Email joel.hansen@mybllh.org or call or text him at (715) 321-2631.

30 Hour Famine - 2017

We are so thankful to have had a healthy and safe fast. We interviewed some of the students to hear about their experience. I hope it motivates you to think about ways you can support people in need around you. It sure has motivated us! We look forward to another Famine event in 2018.
