What is TRIB3?

TRIB3 is a gathering of students who long to connect to the God who made us, to each other, and to the world around us. TRIB3 is taken from Revelation 7:9-10.

"After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice; ‘Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne and to the lamb.’”

We are shown a picture of God’s ultimate goal and purpose – the collection of people from all different places and walks of life. They are diverse and unique, but they are all united through Jesus. Their focus is on what God has done and on what God is going to do next. This is the idea behind TRIB3 – a group of young adults who seek to bring people together and long to follow Jesus with their whole heart and life. In this new way of living, there is no one on the outside because, in Jesus, there is no outside.

Where do you meet?

We meet twice each week with Students. Sunday at 8:30 am and Wednesday at 6:00 pm. No matter when we meet, we get started in the Mission Café.

Who is it for?

TRIB3 is for any student looking for a place to connect with others. Middle School focuses on 6th, 7th and 8th grade. High School is designed for those in 9-12th grades.

How can I be involved?

Stay in touch with your child’s small group leader. Offer to drive, hosts events, buy the pizza, or help clean up. Letting small group leaders spend time with students and share life with them allows them to share more wisdom and Biblical truth. Help enable that.

Share your concerns about your student. Either with someone on the student ministry staff, a small group leader, or other parents, maybe even some who has walked this road. You may find out what concerns you is perfectly normal. Or there may be something to talk about and deal with. Either way, nothing happens if you just sit on it.

Be willing to serve as a special event volunteer. We do all kinds of crazy (ok, well, perfectly safe, though seemingly odd) things. There are plenty of times we are looking for someone to come in for one night and help us out.

Pray for TRIB3 Ministry Leaders, your child, his friends, and teachers.

Be a small group leader. Not your child’s, but someone else’s.
