5 Reasons You Should Keep Your Teen in Youth Group

An Article by Greg Stier


So much of what we are able to do as a ministry is because of the support of our parents. Please prayerfully consider if you or your family is able to serve in any of the following ways:

1. Youth Group Snack

It's no secret, teens love food! We love being able to provide our youth with a light snack during youth group. Please let us know if you can provide a snack (rice Krispy treats, chips, fruit, veggies, brownies, etc.) for the group on a Sunday or Wednesday night. 

2. Driver

We rely on parents and leaders to drive our youth to and from events. In order to be a driver, you must be over 21 and able to pass a background check. 

3. Leader

We are always in the process of looking for volunteers to serve on our team in the youth ministry. We believe that solid ministry is built on relationships – between adult leaders and with students. Relationships are key to students feeling loved and understanding God’s love in practical ways. This is when real spiritual growth takes place in a student’s life.

If you love God and have a heart for teens, please consider being a leader on Wednesday or Sunday night Youth Group. For the safety of our students and leaders, a background check is required. Contact Danielle to find out more.
