Our Youth Group program is organized and led by the Youth Leadership Team. This group gathers to plan our youth group evening and special events, accompanies youth on overnight trips, supports the development of our young people and journey alongside them as they enter into the adventures and changes of life! Many on our team were once youth group members themselves, have worked in the summer camp setting or feel called to ministry with young people. Our youth leaders have all completed a criminal records check and have, or are in progress of completing, the “Safe Church” program.
Our Youth Leadership Team is supported by our Children, Youth and Families Ministry Coordinator, Melissa Green. Melissa has a deep passion for ministry within the church particularly with children, youth, young adults and families. She believes that all ages have a space in worship and that we are each called to a ministry of service and witness in the church and the world. Central to Melissa’s fourteen years of work with young people in the church is an important understanding of mentorship and journeying alongside while creating spaces where the Holy One can be encountered and community can be built.
Stop by and say hello or give Melissa a shout!
