About Our Youth Group

We’ve been blessed to have a married couple Ryan and Crissy (who also helped start the church) build the youth ministry from scratch alongside other parents.  They have built up a team of amazing parents who help run everything. Each week the youth group meets on Sunday evenings for a time of games, prayer, youth-led worship, Bible teaching, and splitting up into age/gender groups for discussion led by various parents. The annual Summer Camp and Spring Fling dance are highlights for everyone. The youth group loves goofing around and having fun. They also work hard to bring in the kids who are in the margins and make sure everyone feels welcome no matter their background. And while they do have fun, they’re also very serious about the Bible and following Jesus. We want to see the healthy culture that has been built to continue, to continue investing in leaders among the youth group, and to continue high parental involvement.
