Youth Ministries

The Youth Department is a Christ-centered ministry where God's Word operates as guide for the ministry. We seek to impact the lives of young people through relevant Bible Studies, engaging activities, and fellowship opportunities. Our vision uses Psalm 100:2 and Luke 19:10 as a ministry springboard. Our theme for 2016 is S3 where we will focus upon Seeking, Serving, and Skill. We are building our youth evangelism, increasing the technology within the church, encouraging more teaching from older youth, motivating students to become involved in local missionary activities.
