The Youth Ministry of Christ Covenant Church is committed to the discipleship of students in 6th through 12th grades, incorporating them into the full life of the church. Our ministry trains leaders from other generational communities to pour themselves into students and model what it looks like to follow Christ in all of life. We are committed to being shaped by the Word of God (our final authority for faith and practice), depending upon the Holy Spirit in prayer, and intentionally being involved in the lives of one another.
“Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.” – Colossians 1:28
