Kids Across America partners with Elevate Branson for Summer Bash Block Party

Kids Across America (KAA) joined Elevate Branson for its annual Summer Bash Block Party for the local community on June 12. More than 200 attendees enjoyed live music, games, inflatables, a picnic dinner and community fellowship. 


Students from Higher Ground (HG), KAA’s two-year leadership program, served dinner, set up and facilitated the inflatables, games and a climbing wall for attendees to enjoy. This outreach served as the capstone for the students after a week of servant leadership training. 


“The perception is that you have to leave the country to do mission work,” explained Jenson Newton, HG Director. “Through HG, we want to show campers various mission opportunities right here in the U.S. 


Students going through Year 1 of HG not only take a deep dive into the Bible, but they also learn how to communicate biblical truth with people and learn outreach principles. 


Prior to event set-up, 14 HG students toured Elevate Branson and learned about its heart for all people to reach their full potential, as well as the assorted services it offers residents. 


HG student Kayden Davis, a high school student from Austin, appreciated the chance to learn and grow through this experience. She connected with one of woman attending and was able to listen to her story, encourage and pray for her. 


“My experience at HG and Elevate Branson literally makes me want to do more,” Kayden said. Even though she had some volunteering and ministry outreach under her belt, Kayden is returning to Austin ready to serve others in her own community.
