Youth

Our youth ministry exists to: Love GodLove the Church, and Love the World.Whitley, Jason - minister

We do this through a broad based program that focuses on reaching teenagers for Christ where they are and loving them for who they are. 

Our events that focus on helping teenagers foster and facilitate a love for God are service based activities.  They are designed to be fun, rewarding, fulfilling, and encouraging.  Our focus is to serve God by serving others by way of giving of our time and abilities. 

Our events that focus on connecting with other Christians are designed to be warm and inviting.  We want all our teenagers to feel accepted, be encouraged to participate, and want to come back.  We also focus on teaching and building a knowledge based love for the Lord.

Our events that focus on reaching the non-Christian world are fun, exciting, and geared toward teenagers who may not have any exposure to the church.  This gives them an opportunity to meet other teenagers with similar interests, backgrounds, and struggles.  This also allows them to feel more comfortable in a church environment.

We all strive to live as a living sacrifice to God.  Through our youth ministry, we want our teenagers to know the Bible and do what it says.
