Our youth and family ministry equips middle and high school age children to be disciples of Jesus Christ — to connect them in community, to help them grow in faith, discover their gifts and serve others with their lives.
This ministry is centered on the following five Biblical purposes: Worship, Service, Evangelism, Fellowship and Discipleship. Our youth programs are designed for 6th through 12th graders. Because we are a tech‑heavy demographic, we use several more modern ways to communicate.
