Sister Sarah Terry – Director of Youth Ministries
The Youth Department Ministry was established for the purpose of ministering to the needs of our youth. Our mission is to “help our youth become disciples of our Lord through Christ-centered activities that promote their desire to serve”.
The Youth Department endeavors to fulfill our mission by keeping our youth actively involved in church activities, helping them become more aware of and familiar with church outreach programs, providing opportunities for community volunteerism, and allowing them many opportunities for social and fellowship activities.
We reach out to our youth by providing activities for their spiritual, social, and intellectual development in age appropriate settings. All of our youth are assigned to grade specific “units” which allow for growth and fellowship within their own age group. Each unit is lead by a caring adult church member who serves as a mentor. Through leadership and guidance, our unit leaders strive to foster a “role model” relationship with each child.
As youth leaders, we embrace a team approach to helping our youth become servants of Jesus Christ. We value the active support and involvement of parents and other adults as we commit ourselves to fulfilling the mission.
