What is church ownership?
Ownership is a way for you to:

commit to being a part of what God has called us to do.
demonstrate your intent to connect with this part of God’s family.
acknowledge your partnership with other believers.

Middle school and high school students attend the regular Ownership Workshop mentioned above.
