SPECTACULAR is a gathering of approximately 1,100 youth and their leaders at Graceland University. This event is the largest annual gathering of youth in the Community of Christ. During SPEC campers have an opportunity to participate in leadership and discipleship development, worship, arts, music, and sports.
The mission of SPECTACULAR is to create a safe, Christ-centered community that encourages young women and men to discover God, and their inherent worth, and cultivate and express their giftedness.
The youth of the Inland West Mission Center joined together with youth from the Greater Pacific Northwest Mission Center to form the Northwest Delegation.

We are excited to announce that in 2024, the Inland West Mission Center will be leading a thought-provoking discussion based on the book "Grounded" by Dianna Butler-Bass.
This book club presents a unique opportunity to build a sense of community across distances and time zones, allowing us to collectively explore and prepare for the meaningful themes of 2024. We warmly invite you to be a part of this enriching journey.
