Our youth staff works hard to be God's hands and feet to the students and families we connect with. Our desire is that the youth ministry will work alongside parents to aid them in the spiritual development of their teenager.

Our Church has been blessed with students who are very talented and want to use their gifts for God's glory. Youth Praise Band, Student Ensemble, and Student Drama are opportunities for our students to lead in worship.

These practice times usually occur on Sunday afternoons.
Our youth ministry provides several special focused opportunities for our students to grow closer to Christ throughout the year. Disciple Now, Kick Start, Youth Camp, Youth Evangelism Conference, Associational Leadership Conference, Super Summer, and Mission Trips are all ministry events that provide students with opportunities of growth and service in their lives each year.

Adolescents are at a crucial times in their lives where mentoring is most needed and natural for development.
