The teen years mark a key transitional stage in life. Moving from childhood to adulthood is an upheaval! But God uses times of change to bring great growth. That's where the Youth Ministry Staff & Volunteers come alongside parents - helping young men and women know God intimately, read His Word accurately, share and defend their faith, serve others and develop deep relationships.
