The Event is a weekend experience for high school students (grades 9-12) on the campus of Ozark Christian College in Joplin, MO. It encourages and equips those who minister to youth and challenges students to pursue life on mission with God, to practice Christian service, and to build Christian character at a young age. The Event also functions to recruit more workers for the harvest field, engaging them in Ozark’s mission to train for Christian service.

For safety, OCC will not provide on-campus housing for The Event this year. CRCC participants will be staying at an Airbnb in Joplin.
