ADULTS AND TEENS
In a society that demands performance, perfection, and priority, this ministry offers youth and adults a place to gain Godly perspective. It is a beneficial ministry as it seeks to affirm
and enhance ministry that begins in the home. For youth that do not have a faith based upbringing, youth ministry reaches out and instills the seeds of spirituality that will develop throughout these key formative years.
For those who serve in this ministry, the greatest benefit is the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of teens who need strong mentors. This ministry is unique, hands on, fun, enlightening, and rewarding in far different ways than any other ministry of the church.
