EC Youth

Our Approach

We are passionate about teenagers encountering God, making friends, growing together, and making a difference

Relationships are a critical part of the lives of teenagers. We provide great environments where kids can come together to meet other kids. Adults serve as mentors to connect students with Biblical truth and help them apply it to their specific situations. Our desire is to partner with parents to help teenagers thrive as they transition into becoming adults.

Middle School

This is a unique time in life where young people develop in key areas of their identity. Our program works specifically with this age group to help them where they are. Kids will have fun as they hang out with great people and learn what God says about them.

High School

In this transistional time, students need to have great guidance to help them navigate the unique challenges they face. We provide teaching from the Bible to serve as a north start for making decisions that will shape the future.
