At BIGhouse, our goal is to



ENGAGING students as they

BUILD independent faith to

LAUNCH them into a lifetime pursuit of Christ.


Join us Wednesday nights at Orchard Hill Church in the Community Center for Big House, a High School ministry opportunity for students of the Cedar Valley. Big House is Nazareth's weekly youth worship event done in partnership with Orchard Hill Church.


BIGhouse is a mid-week ministry event with worship, teaching, and small groups for high school students in the Cedar Valley and surrounding towns.


  • BIGhouse doors open for popcorn and fellowship at 6:30 p.m.
  • Large Group programming starts at 7:00 p.m.
  • Small groups meet at 8:00 p.m.
  • Late night open gym for dodgeball, 9-square, and hangouts is from 9:00-930 p.m.


Small groups form early in the year, and include about seven to ten students with one or two adult leaders. Small groups are places for students and leaders to share about life, discuss the teaching and God's Word, and then challenge each other in their walk with Christ.


BIGhouse meets from early September through the first week of May. We break for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Break.


For more information, please contact NAZ Senior High Ministry director Kristina McBurney.



One amazing experience for our Big House students each summer is participation in Caravan: a week-long adventure trip focused on helping students to grow in their faith and their relationships with one another.
