our mission

We desire to see students DISCOVER and PURSUE a faith of their OWN.


ONEIGHTY is commited to providing a fun, safe, spiritual place for students to come, belong, and have a great time. However we believe we have more to offer students than just a fun place. We want to share the life-changing truth that Jesus cares for them and died for their sins.
