Hope Youth meets Sunday evenings from 5:00-6:30pm at The Barn*

The goal of Hope’s Youth Ministry is to minister to the youth and their families so that the youth grow in gospel dependence, become a spiritually healthy member of Christ’s body, and are compelled by the gospel toward missional living. We seek to do this by creating a gospel community for the youth that gives them the opportunity to share their lives, be taught the Gospel through the scriptures, and be involved in missions and mercy work.
*Our regular meetings take place during the school year. The Barn is located at the back of our Olde Providence property.

Shared Lives

We want the youth to be able to share their lives with one another. We want them to grow in caring for, loving, and praying for one another. We also want them to be able to share their lives with older believers in the church. Other adults within the church sharing their lives and dependence on Christ is an important part of the youth ministry. Their love and care for the youth by being involved in their lives is also highly valued.

Gospel Teaching

Along with being supported by adults and seeing their faith modeled, we also hope that clear gospel teaching and conversations applicable to their place in life will help the youth see their need for Christ and how to respond to Christ’s calling on their lives.

Missions/Mercy

We hope to provide opportunities for the youth to be involved in missions and mercy work. We desire to provide ways for them to have the Gospel lead them into serving others. We also hope to give them a vision for doing likewise in their daily lives with family, friends, and classmates.

Alongside Teenagers

Saturday, September 14

Drew Hill is coming to Hope Community Church (OP site) on Saturday, September 14th to offer wisdom for parents and youth leaders on loving our students with the Gospel. This will be helpful for parents of elementary age students to high school age students, and for anyone who works with students. Drew will address what it looks like to engage teenagers with gospel, how to actively engage with their story, and frustrations that come with that, like technology.  Join us as pastor, author, speaker, and national YL staff member, Drew Hill, helps us think through these important thoughts!

 

Family (both parents) cost is $35; if you are registering only one person (youth ministry worker, one parent, etc.), use code “ONE” to lower the cost to $25. Lunch and Drew’s Book, Alongside (one copy per family), is included in the registration fee!
