Ministry Philosophy

The Apostle Paul exhorts the Corinthians that, “whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). This verse summarizes the theme of our youth groups—capturing the way our hearts, minds, time, devotion, and mission are all to be devoted to the glory of God.

Our youth groups are founded on the premise that God intends parents and the teenagers to work and grow together in these years—parents called to disciple, teens called to honor, each growing together in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

What About Parents?

Parents are encouraged to be active participants along with their teenagers in both youth group ministries. In addition to our monthly corporate meetings, we host other special meetings throughout the year that we pray will give us a chance to grow in our relationships and build lifetime memories.

High School Youth Group (HSYG) has two monthly corporate meetings, where God-glorifying worship, biblical teaching & application, fellowship, food, and fun all play a key part. We address the subjects that matter most to our high school teenagers and their parents, helping them to live out God's will for their lives.
