Youth Ministry

YOUTH

— Belonging. Believing. Becoming.

Our vision for Youth Ministry is that every youth finds their place. We believe that every youth is uniquely gifted and created by God to hear God, experience God and serve God in their own way. This isn't a one-size-fits all Youth Ministry. It's our honor to guide them as they discover for themselves the fullness of life in God's love.

ABOUT

Spiritual Transformation

Our Youth Ministry is unique. Open to youth 6th grade to 12th grade, we're serious about meeting each person, right where they are and walking alongside them as they navigate their faith journey. We want every member of our youth group to find their place and step into the fullness of life in God's love.

The God Centered Model for Spiritual Transformation is a unique model we use with our youth. It gives each person the opportunity to encounter God's Living Word, the Bible, and then allows space for that experience to bring them into the very presence of God. Our youth learn how to authentically connect with one another, God and with their own hearts through small groups. They embrace what they don't understand, learn to have discussions and ask questions. They learn to listen for the voice of God. 

Their voices and their gifts matter in God's kingdom, right now, today. It's our privilege to help our youth discover how God has uniquely gifted them while giving them the freedom and guidance to grow in and take ownership of their faith. We're committed to helping them grow and live out the mission of becoming living proof of His love, one person at a time.  

Watching Our Children Grow

We are committed to walking alongside our children, youth and their families from infancy to adulthood. Each of these milestones involves a special ceremony and a parenting component. In this way, we recognize our children's growing faith and help parents to lead their children spiritually throughout their development.
