Programs Youth


Our Mission

Our Youth Ministry exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to the glory of God the Father. As defined by Jesus Himself, a disciple is one who (1) knows and follows Jesus, (2) is being changed by Jesus, and (3) is committed to the mission of Jesus (Matthew 4:19). Our goal is to begin this process with students, or pick them up wherever they are on their faith-journey, and push them forward in spiritual growth.

Our Programs

Sunday morning bible study

Join us for church on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am. About half-way through the service, before the sermon, youth grade 6-12 will be dismissed for their own Bible Study Class in the youth room. On the first Sunday of each month, the youth remain in the service to hear the sermon and partake in communion.

We are using The Gospel Project Curriculum to study through the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation. At present we are studying through The Gospels, taking an in-depth look at the final week of Jesus' life.

youth missions trips

Short-term missions trips give students months of biblical training followed by a cross-cultural experience of serving Christ globally. Everything they learn then gets applied to living on mission for Christ daily; right here, right now, locally.

A Short term team will be returning to Medellin, Colombia during March Break 2020. You can find information about our latest trip on our Youth Missions page.

Scholarship fund

Here at Emmanuel we have created a Scholarship Fund to provide financial assistance and encouragement to post-secondary students; 1) who are desiring formal training to serve God in a vocational capacity, or 2) have displayed a giftedness to serve others and may consider a vocational capacity or, 3) who desire to be better equipped to serve God in our society in an informal way through secular vocation.

You can find full details of the policies, procedures, and guidelines for the scholarship fund in our church office, along with an application form. If you would like to talk to a staff member about this fund, please contact Pastor Aaron.

Our Team

We have an amazing team of adult leaders (and student leaders in our Jr. High program) who care for and disciple our youth, led by Pastor Aaron Johnson.
