Our Commitment to You

We will lead and provide you the best learning opportunities possible. It is critical that you learn how to lead, communicate, and set healthy boundaries.

We will give you ownership. This will be done by allowing you to take the lead with relational events, speaking opportunities, and project management.

We will set the bar high. We operate with a commitment to excellence. We hope to challenge, sharpen, and encourage you to make influential relationships and programs.

We will let you see behind the curtain. Youth ministry is not all glitz and glam. We want you to see/experience the good and messiness that comes with ministry so that you are better equipped to lead your own ministry.

We will encourage collaboration. We want you to learn about the other people on our youth staff and in our church. Discover what drives them, what they hope to accomplish and how the communities’ culture has influenced the way they lead their ministries.
