Rock Springs 4-H Ranch

Junction City, KS

Join us for the 2024 Middle School Huddle (MSH) which will be held April 19-20 at Rock Springs 4-H Ranch, south of Junction City (1168 Highway K157, Junction City, KS 66441).The goal of the Middle School Huddle is to lift up the middle school students of our Kansas District and provide community and faith growth opportunities through time in God’s Word.

The theme for this year’s Middle School Huddle is “Connected” based on John 15:1-5. We will consider our individual place in the body of Christ and how that connects us with our Savior, Jesus Christ. The keynote speaker is Rev. Ryan Matthias, the campus pastor at Concordia University, Nebraska (his biography is below). Music will be led by a praise team also from Concordia University, Nebraska.


Registration is open. Participants who register from February 1 – March 27 will receive a T-shirt. Late registration from March 28 – April 12 will not guarantee a T-shirt. The cost for the event will be $80 per person.
