Graceland University and Community of Christ Spec

We love SPEC!

For decades, Graceland University has welcomed the Community of Christ Spectacular (SPEC) youth gathering to its Lamoni campus. SPEC gives high school students a taste of the Graceland experience and encourages the building of community, one of the university's key values.

What is SPEC?

The mission of SPECTACULAR is to create a safe, Christ-centered community that encourages young women and men to discover God, their inherent worth, and cultivate and express their giftedness. During SPECTACULAR, over 1,000 campers and their leaders gather at Graceland University for the largest annual gathering of youth in Community of Christ.

All campers have opportunities to participate in leadership and discipleship development, diverse worship, and expression of arts, music and sports.

During the week, campers share in all avenues of the SPEC experience: service projects, communication workshops, basketball, musical instruction, table tennis, stage production, worship, delegation devotions, volleyball, tie-dying, cotton candy, discussions about dating and relationships, learning more about our Creator, soccer and much, much more.

SPECTACULAR is sponsored by Community of Christ and is hosted at Graceland University.
