Life Prep

Life Prep is a two-semester program designed for high school seniors. We’ll equip them with a foundation of practical and spiritual tools that will help them thrive in their senior year and the years to come.

Why Life Prep?

Community with other high school seniors.

Senior year brings huge changes, and no one understands that more than your peers. Life Prep gathers seniors together to develop new friendships that will support you through this year and beyond.

Wisdom from trusted mentors.

Sometimes it’s easier to process things with someone who’s not in your immediate family, so a trusted adult who isn’t mom or dad can be a really important voice in your life. Life Prep connects you with a mentor who will support you, encourage you, and point you back to Jesus in this time of transition.

Support from parents.

Your family will be with you longer than anyone else, so Life Prep helps you and your parents navigate this hard year together. We’ll talk through what a healthy relationship between adult parents and adult children looks like, and we’ll help mom and/or dad continue to have that influential voice in your life now and in the years to come.

What you’ll learn through Life Prep

Life Prep offers real-life conversations, expert advice, life hacks, hands-on practice, and a committed community of mentors and other seniors that will help you move forward into adulthood. 

Financial Skills

It’s never too early to start building a strong financial foundation, so Life Prep students will learn important money skills including financial planning, budgeting, and investing. We empower seniors with the knowledge and tools they need to make informed decisions about their finances and to live a life of big-hearted generosity like Jesus.

Life Skills

Life Prep covers real-world skills like effective communication, problem-solving, and goal-setting to help students develop resilience and a mindset for growth. Our heart? To build the skills you need for healthy and lasting relationships that demonstrate the love of Jesus.

Personal Faith

Faith is the foundation for how you live your life, so we’ll help seniors explore and deepen their understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow Him with their life. Have a student who is deconstructing his or her faith? Our community will be there to listen and patiently help build it up again in a way that points them back to the real, Biblical Jesus.

Let’s talk schedule.

Week 1: Large Group at Church (2:30-4p)

Week 2: Informal Hangout

Week 3: Small Group at Host Homes (2:30-4p)


What does Life Prep cost?

All Life Prep sessions are a free ministry of Grace Church. We do host an optional annual Epic Trip over Spring Break that will involve fees for travel, lodging, and activities.

Do I have to attend Grace Church to participate?

No. Life Prep is open to all seniors, whether they are a part of Grace, a part of another church, or a part of no church at all. Grace Church is a pretty special place, though! If you don’t have a church home, we would love for you to check out a weekend service in person or online.

How do I register?

Sign-up for Life Prep here. We’ll have an info meeting for students and parents on Sunday, August 13th, where you’ll meet mentors and hear more about the program.

Can I be in a Life Prep group with my friend?

Yes! There is a place for you to request a specific friend in your group on the sign up form.

What is the Epic Trip?

The Epic Trip is a chance for our Life Prep group to get away during Spring Break and be stretched and grow in new ways. We’ll have some crazy adventures and some meaningful ways to serve together. The only catch? Only leaders know where we are going!
