The Christian Rites of Passage (CRoP) program was created under the banner of Cascade United Methodist Church of Atlanta, GA. Established in 2003, CRoP is a year long program for high school students entering their sophomore or junior year.

Program participants are immersed in a 12-step rites of passage progression from one life stage to another in a culminating Christian Debutante & Beau ball with recognition and celebration.  The event brings together the participants, families and friends to celebrate the accomplishments of the participants and their “crossing over” from one life stage to another. 

Christian Rites of Passage Key Messages:  

  • Nurturing spiritual growth
