Here are some great resources for you and we'll be updating it with more regularly!


Parenting resources:




Each month we publish a newsletter with lots of help for parents trying to raise teens and pre-teens that love Jesus. You can download it here. It's also got our current youth calendar in the back of it. Score!

Want to know what your teenager is learning about at our youth ministry events? Here are two documents for you 1) an outline of our 5 Shaping Truths which are the guiding principles that we choose curriculum and strategize based on. 2) our lesson series through August in youth ministry. Take a look at what we're working on and e-mail us with your feedback and ideas for what you'd like to see taught.

  The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding (CPYU) is a nonprofit organization committed to building strong families by serving to bridge the cultural-generational gap between parents and teenagers. All kinds of great resources for parents are available here.


A great way to understand teens today and what they're going through. We ask all of our leaders to read this book and think it will help you too to gain a greater understanding of youth and youth culture today! Purchase it here.

  Here's a snapshot on what we think about youth ministry around here.

It'll help you understand better why we do what we do and how we can work together.


As a youth ministry we want to be a great partner to you and your family. Please feel free to contact us to talk about that process. We are honored to serve with you in helping your teens know God.


Be His,
