Our ministry prepares young disciples of Jesus Christ through the experiences of worship, discipleship, leadership, and outreach. Our prayer is that our graduates honor God, love Jesus, follow the Spirit, and stand on God’s Word as they bring faith, hope, and love into the world.
On Sunday evenings, The Well provides a targeted youth worship gathering where high school teens can connect with each other as they worship the Living God. The Well meets from 6:30 to 7:45 PM.
As a congregation, we work together to navigate our high school students toward a more holistically healthy way of looking at church. We intentionally do not offer a traditional Sunday School class for high school students because we want them in a congregational worship service. Studies done by the Pew Research Center indicate that over 70% of teens walk away from their faith when they leave home. The remaining 30% of teens tended to be actively involved in the worship service of their church and have three or more adults who knew them by name. We are choosing to defy the odds by enabling teens to engage in worship.
Young musicians and vocalists have a variety of places to use their gifts. They may put their musical talent to service as worship leaders in Children’s Ministry, Middle School Ministry, High School Ministry, or VOX Choir.
Several small group options are offered at various times and locations, giving students an opportunity to meet weekly and develop deeper relationships with God, with each other, and with adult mentors.
Confirmation classes provide the opportunity to examine some of the building blocks of faith in a place that is safe to ask questions and express doubts. The course is designed for sophomores and older, and leads students through a holistic overview of the Bible, theology, and their relationship with God.
Dedicated upper classmen who have completed Confirmation are eligible to become leaders for our middle school program, Fish Co. In an environment of action-packed games, singing, small groups, and weekend retreats, young leaders cultivate skills through hands-on ministry.
Our annual summer mission trip is deeply woven throughout the fiber of our programming and is designed with the specific purpose of helping teens grow spiritually by following Jesus better. The location is usually announced in late winter, and we devote months preparing with a focus on team building and spiritual growth.
