WHAT IS UNITE? UNITE is a local missions mini-camp in Shelby County, Alabama. Functioning through the Shelby Baptist Association, UNITE provides the opportunity for church student ministries across the Birmingham Metro area to partner together in serving our county with the Gospel – physically and spiritually. Students are placed into adult-led “ministry tracks” (evangelism, construction, kids club, etc.) through which they will serve within each day. Each evening they will come together for a worship service led by a high quality speaker and band.
WHO IS IT FOR? Students that have completed Grades 6-12
WHEN IS IT? July 14-17, 2021
WHERE DO STUDENTS STAY? Churches can choose how their students will be housed at night. The preferred option is for students and chaperones to stay on-site at a local participating church. Currently, we plan to meet each morning at the FBC Pelham Annex on Hwy 31 to UNITE for prayer and to be sent out to our ministry assignments.
WHAT IS THE COST? $75 per person BEFORE June 15 // $85 per person AFTER June 15
DO I NEED MY OWN TRANSPORTATION DURING THE WEEK? Yes. Each track will be assigned to a vehicle/van/bus that is provided by participating churches. Your drivers and modes of transportation will be utilized by UNITE to transport students during the day according to Track teams which consist of participants from different churches. We request that you bring 12-15 passenger vans and small buses if possible. See our Transportation Agreement for more details.
