(6th-12th grades)

EDGE is our dynamic, energetic and community-based youth ministry for middle school and high school students to explore faith in Jesus Christ and how to fulfill His will for their lives.

EDGE 3E Vision

By the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit, we:

1. Encourage non-believers to accept Christ as their Lord and Savior (John 1:12-13)

2. Equip new believers with God’s Word (2 Tim. 3:16)

3. Empower mature believers to take on Christ’s ministry and succeed (1 Cor. 12:12-31, 2 Tim. 2:1-2).

We meet on the first and third Saturdays in the evenings from 6:30pm to 9pm. We often share dinner together, play various team-building games, investigate and apply God's Word, spend time in worship and prayer as well as connecting with one another in small groups. Students have a chance to discover and share who they are---their joys, struggles, hurts, questions and passions. We welcome you to come and do life in Christ with us. Students are invited to come early for various sports and games at 6:15pm. Pizza dinner is usually at 6:45pm and we strive to finish between 9 & 9:15pm.  Many students stick around to set up chairs for the next morning's Worship service.

WE ARE SO EXCITED that over half of our students who attended this conference made a decision to let Christ be the driver -- please pray for them as they seek to follow up with a bible reading PLAN, cultivate relationships with PARTNERS who also want to follow Jesus and as they PERSIST in their faith even when times get hard and they fall down.  Click here to see the 2017 rewind video. 

OUR YOUTH also attended this year's Dare to Share Conference.  You want to watch this video Life in 6 Words and see how they have learned to share the Gospel.  Mark your calendars for Dare 2 Share Live on Saturday, Sept. 23rd.  Check it out here:  dare2sharelive.

Equip Sunday Seminars  Twice a month, our students will have an opportunity to be equipped to think biblically and live out the Word of God in their daily lives.  These seminars are interactive and will focus on relevant topics that students are dealing with in regards to their faith.  These seminars will meet at 10:20am during the Worship Service in either the Chapel Reception room or the Community House.  Continental breakfast is often included.  On other Sundays we seek to equip our students to listen and apply the sermon with the adults in the Worship service.  Upcoming EQUIP Sundays are June 11, 25; July 2, 16, 30; and, Aug. 6th @ 10:30am.
