The goal for our 7th-12th grade youth is for them to grow in their faith and build their lives around Christ and making disciples for him. This happens first and foremost in the home, the physical family of our youth. We want to make sure parents have the tools and the desire to be the primary spiritual leaders of their teens. Secondly, it happens in their spiritual family, not just in the Youth Group but in the whole church, as we aim to bring the youth in closer connection with every generation in Christ’s body here at Missouri Street. The youth meets every Wednesday night for our “Huddles” where we spend time fellowshipping and preparing to spread the word to the world. We also attend various camps, retreats, youth rallies, and mission trips throughout the year to encourage spiritual renewal and servant-minded hearts.
