haywire weekly schedule

sundays 9:00am

HAYWIRE Sundays is your opportunity to begin making some relational connections with others through our Small Groups. You’ll have a chance to hang out with kids your age, sing along to some great music, have fun competing against other Small Groups for prizes, and learn a lot about how to make a connection between God, the Bible, and your real life! Come get to know some other middle school kids and learn to live your life with purpose.

wednesdays 6:30pm

At HAYWIRE Wednesdays you’ll be able to come and enjoy a variety of ways to express yourself through games and discussions, as well as learning about the life of Jesus. We meet in the Student Center just inside the middle entrance. We aren’t just sitting around, so make sure you wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Looking forward to seeing you and meeting your friends. We will kick off our 2019-2020 season August 28, 2019!


Summer Camp June 2020


We will be announcing our 2020 camp dates and opening registration early October 2019. Our camp spots always sell out so you’ll want to mark your calendars and keep checking back. We will be hosted by Christ in Youth (CIY) for MIX camp at Windermere Conference Center near Roach, Missouri.

Hope@Home and Student Pastor
Shane Friesen


Shane, who has been working with students at Hope since 1995, has long had a passion to see young people begin to make an impact on their world and culture. He likes to help kids cultivate their gifts, engage the culture, and leave some Jesus behind because of the way they lived their lives. Having 5 kids of his own, Shane also has a passion for seeing families become the primary discipling influence of their own children. He enjoys helping equip adults on how to raise kids who love Jesus in a culture that is constantly changing. You’ll also find him tinkering with the our App, this website, and Hope’s Hope@Home ministry which helps equip our homes to become the primary place discipleship takes place.


Interested in becoming a part of our team to students? Please fill out our Next Gen Volunteer Form to get started today. Someone from our ministry staff will call you within a couple of business days and set up an appointment to meet in person.

We value our kids and students along with their safety. We’d love to have you, Lord willing, find a place to serve alongside us to draw them closer to Jesus.
