United Methodist Youth
We want to connect young people and those in ministries with young people to each other, to the church, and to God. The purpose of the our youth program is to empower young people as world-changing disciples of Jesus Christ, to nurture faith development, and to equip young leaders. We strive to:
- Develop youth/young adult spiritual leaders in our congregation to transform lives by making disciples of Jesus
- Challenge our Church to embrace, confirm, and celebrate God's call on the lives of young people
- Cultivate and nurture life-giving ministries where influence and worth are not limited by age or experience
- Advocate for the issues and concerns of young people in the church and the global community
- Empower young people to work as agents of peace, justice, and mercy
- Build a network of support and provide resources that connect the diverse experiences of youth and young adults in
local ministries and communities across the globe
