Youth Mission Team


Youth members can ask to be paired with an adult mentor. Mentor and youth meet together on a regular basis to pray, study and encourage one another in their faith.

Youth Mission

The past number of years our youth have travelled to various cities for weeks of service. As part of these mission experiences our youth, along with adult leaders, have travelled to Louisville, Charleston, Cincinnati and Raleigh for a week long adventure helping the underpriviledged in those cities in various capacities. They volunteered seniors homes, clothing depots, thrift shops, food rescue operations, farms and in a number of different areas. Youth also had the opportunity to learn about local culture, attending a rodeo and attending July the Fourth Celebrations and worshipping in a local afro-american churches.
