Life Support

Youth ministry wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for volunteers. To keep it going week-in and week-out, it requires a team of people willing to give of themselves and their time to help students discover a faith and life they were created to live. If you’re interested in wanting to be a part of our youth ministry in any capacity, don’t let the assumption of what it takes to be involved stop you from considering a role with our ministry. There are lots of ways you can contribute. To find out more about a specific ministry team, read through the many opportunities we have to support all that we do.
