Open Door Youth

Our Passion


Our passion is to help guide youth (7-12 grade) toward adult Christian maturity by providing an environment of grace that is conducive to teen growth. We approach youth ministry with a “whole church” strategy, connecting our youth to many adults and to the broader life and ministry of the church.

Provide opportunities for meaningful ministry

Encourage meaningful fellowship

Provide challenging growth experiences

Youth Bible Studies

Wednesday, 6:30-8:30 pm

This summer, we're meeting all together to enjoy some great summer fun and bible study. 


Youth in Ministry


We encourage all our Youth to be involved in some area of ministry using their interests and gifts. This is a key element in their spiritual formation. Some may serve in our Kids Ministry through The Ark or KidZone Worship. Others can serve as Greeters or on the Worship Team. As with adults, we expect those who serve in these ministries to participate in the worship service and be connected to a small group.   


Prayer Champions


One of our key goals is to assign an adult Prayer Champion to each of our youth. These Prayer Champions are committed to praying regularly for their teens and encouraging them throughout their middle school and high school years, and even beyond.
