All middle and high students are welcome to join the youth ministry as we seek to follow Christ as his disciples. Our chief goal is to introduce students to Jesus Christ through relational ministry so that they might place their faith in him and become his disciples. God wants people of all ages to follow him and we want to guide students on that journey. Junior and Senior high believers are full-fledged members of Christ’s body and deserve to be given the chance to contribute to God’s mission.
In the youth ministry, students will experience a loving community where they can develop committed relationships with their peers and adult leaders that will spur them on in their faith journey. God’s Word will be taught in a hermeneutically accurate, age specific, and practical fashion so that students can understand God’s truth and apply it to their lives immediately! And of course we will be playing lots of games to foster a spirit of light-hearted fun to help alleviate students of the immense stress that comes with life during puberty.
We are excited that our summer interns, Alise & Jacob will be with us throughout the summer. They both attend RUF at USF! Alise is pursuing a degree in Health Sciences and Jacob is pursuing a degree in piano performance.

MS & HS can be challenging years for both students and parents. As Christian parents, we are to MODEL to our children in word and deed the attractiveness of a Godward life. INFLUENCE a child’s heart in such a way that s/he is attracted to the gospel of Jesus Christ as it is demonstrated in the Christian life and love of his or her parents. DEMONSTRATE an attractive, Christ-centered life using biblical discernment to test cultural influences, and teaching children how to exercise biblically informed spiritual and moral discernment for themselves. Finally, actively ENGAGE in shaping the culture of our homes in order to incline our children’s hearts toward God. For other Youth resources, click here!
