Upward Challenge 2020: Mountain Mover - Black Mountain NC

Upward Challenge 2020: Mountain Mover - Black Mountain NC

Upward Challenge is a week-long event that focuses on

  • introducing participants to the person of the Holy Spirit,
  • encourages them to seek a deeper walk with Jesus Christ, and
  • nurtures a growing relationship with God the Father.

This year's topic: Mountain Movers

mountainmover2...growing in the power of prayer

Prayer was a priority for Jesus at all times of day and night.

But if we're honest, it's not always a priority for us (apart from emergencies!). So how can we discover the passion and power of prayer that's prompted by the Spirit?

Mountain Mover looks at...

  • Getting close to the God who really does want our company and conversation.
  • Praying in the tough times when God seems a million miles away.
  • Faith-filled prayer that moves mountains and shapes the future.

Jesus is already praying for us. He's already opened the front door into God's presence and invites us to come close - we're truly welcome. And he calls us to join in with his prayers, knowing that some things will only change when God's people get praying.

Please put this on your calendars and invite your friends.


This event is designed for youth (rising 8th grade – graduated seniors) who have a desire to deepen their faith.

What does the week look like

During the week, you will participate in interactive teaching sessions, small group discussions, personal solo times, one-on-one prayer ministry, powerful times of worship, group games, a challenging field trip, and times of wonderful fellowship and service.


Community of the Cross in Black Mountain, NC, a wilderness setting which involves camping.


Rising 8th graders - graduated seniors are welcome!

Cost: 0

Yes, that's right, we don't require you to pay a dime to be part of this amazing event!

Instead, we invite you to make a donation towards costs as we take up an offering at the event (eg: about $150 would cover it, but the exact amount is up to you. Go pray about it!).
