Youth Discipleship Ministry

Grades 6 - 12

What we do

The mission of Youth Discipleship Ministry is to provide opportunities for the youth to encounter and grow in a deeper relationship with Christ and his Church and equip them to help others to do the same. Our hope is to foster an environment of prayer, fellowship, and openness where youth feel free and safe to express their thoughts and ideas about their faith. We welcome all youth grades 6-12 to join us on this journey of Faith. Please see the side menu to find out more information about the different events we offer.

What we've been up to
