Massanetta’s Middle School Conference transforms the faith journey of hundreds of middle schoolers from all around the country.  Every aspect of this conference is crafted with middle schoolers in mind.  Conference activities like keynote, recreation, encounter groups, and workshops are centered on the theme of the summer. This year’s theme is…


This coming summer 2019 we will find ourselves “At the Door” in Matthew 7:7-12 - will you kock? Join us as we ask and seek out what it might mean to be in relationship with God. Our personal faith journeys are full of many types of doors: surprise doors, open doors, closed doors, big doors, small doors, even revolving doors. We will navigate these doors together, discover some of God’s good gifts, and live in loving community at ’Netta.

We promise it will be one of the best things your youth does all year!


“Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; KNOCK, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
In everything do to others as you would have them do to you;
for this is the law and the prophets.”

Matthew 7:7-12


Knock, Kock! - Who’s there? -- YOU at Massanetta next summer!

Enabler Program

Building Leaders who Love God, the Church, and the World


Each year Massanetta Springs invites 44 ministry-minded high school youth to serve and lead within the Middle School Conferences. This dynamic leadership program provides a place where youth can lead alongside adults who serve as mentors, facilitators, encourages, older siblings, and faith friends.


Heralded as one of the strongest and most significant leadership tracks in the Church today, the Massanetta Springs Enabler Program changes the lives of younger youth who attend, empowers the faith of the older youth who serve, and creates for the Church a powerful witness to the work and witness of young people in the 21st century.

The Enablers are woven into the flow of every aspect of the conferences, unpacking the scripture in keynotes, organizing large group recreation activities, leading in worship, and building the conference community as they ARE the small group leaders.

The Enabler Program is entering its 26th  year! It is with joy and thanksgiving that we acknowledge the hundreds of young adults who have been impacted by this program. Many continue in full time Christian ministry and a majority continue to worship, serve, and fellowship in faith communities around the nation. 

Applications will be posted on Oct 15, 2018 and will be due by January 14, 2019.
