We exist to encourage a young generation to zealously pursue Jesus Christ, take His life-giving message to the ends of the earth and to address real issues that students face each day. How do we do that? By meeting youth where they are in their lives, in their language, and modeling Christian living. Through worship and conversation, we explore our faith and equip the youth with what it takes to live a Christ-filled life. We have a goal to bring young people together in a life of faith, action and fellowship, and to address spiritual, emotional, and social needs unique to youth.
1 Timothy 4:12 - Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, and in purity.
Teens are encouraged to come as they are so that we can come alongside of them in love. No matter where they are at with God, they will be accepted, and they will be loved. Awakening Youth is not a group, it’s a family. Awakening Youth knows that real ministry is messy; but God makes all things new. Teens are encouraged to be real, to be open, and to be family.
The leadership of Awakening Youth will ensure that Fridays are a safe environment where Jesus is Lord, the Holy Spirit is welcomed, and Father God is glorified!
(Within our youth ministry we have gender and age specific small groups. These groups focus on personal growth, accountability, and relationship building.)
