JULY 10-16 | CUIRIM HOUSE | NOGALES, MX

Can you imagine that one week can change the way you see the world?

Many of the High School students we know believe it and have experienced it at Cuirim Outreach. This is why students return year after year, even into college.

Cuirim 2022 is a week of service and relationships punctuated by three daily times of worship, prayer, and teaching.

Our hope for Cuirim 2022 is that students would grow in their understanding of who they are, their relationship with God, and their responsibility to and relationship with the world.
