Middle and high school youth groups

We work to develop our youth into mature leaders for the mission of Jesus. Our vision for Youth Ministry is to create a safe place for youth to grow in their faith in Jesus. Our youth love one another and develop a community that is both closely knit and welcoming. Through relational lunches once a month, retreats, and leadership training we create fully committed followers of Jesus.
