youth

The teenage years are often the deal-maker or deal-breaker years when it comes to God. It doesn't take a "rocket surgeon" to know that. So, our goal is simple - to do everything we possibly can to help our teens see that you can be cool and love Jesus at the same time. If they do, they're usually committed to serving Him and loving Him for a lifetime.

To accomplish this, we make a big effort to connect each teen with a college-age and/or 20 something adult - someone who really gets to know them. We want to them to experience God, not just learn about Him. That takes doing life together. Letting them see the choices that life throws at them, and standing with them as they make their decisions. We have fun, but it's more that that, we're building relationships.

It can be messy, but we believe it is the only way they can learn to trust in the Lord with all their heart. To lean not on their own understanding of life. And to acknowledge God in all their ways, so that, He will show them the right path to follow - Proverbs 3:5-6.
