The Children & Youth Ministry is grounded in Youth Development principles and practices and comprised of many diverse programs that offer the services, supports, and opportunities necessary for young people to thrive. Using a faith-based approach, the ministry works to ensure that young people are supported across all sectors of the community – school, youth serving agencies, community governance, etc. The programs include:

The GIRL TALK LEADERSHIP & MENTORING PROGRAM serves girls ages 11 to 18-years-old and is founded on six principles: leadership, service, commitment, creativity, respect, and inclusion. The program is designed to be a safe, judgment-free, confidential platform for girls to discuss ANY issue that they are generally not comfortable talking about with their parents/guardians. At the same time, the participants gain skills that will ultimately assist them on their journey toward womanhood, focusing on the whole person (mind, body, and spirit).
