Youth Ministry

Our Ministry & Team

Who qualifies as a youth?
The youth ministry community includes students in grade 6-12, their families, the youth staff and the awesome adults who volunteer to lead our programs.
How can I get a student plugged in to the youth ministry?
Almost every week we meet on Sundays at 10:00am and Wednesday at 6:30pm. On Sunday there is a separate Middle School and High School teaching time followed by break out groups with other students. On Wednesday we eat "high caloric and good" food, have fun, worship, break open God's Word and then play high energy games. Look on the side menu for your age group for details!
What is the goal of the youth ministry?
We want to help families raise their students into healthy adults with a love for Jesus and his holy church. We do this by connecting with students, nurturing their relationship with Jesus Christ, plugging them into the youth ministry community and helping them develop their ability to serve others.

Our Mission

SJD Youth consists of any student currently in grades 6-12, and is built around a middle school (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12) program structure. We have four full-time staff, as well as an amazing group of men and women who have committed their time and talents toward the cultivation of a community in which all students have a voice, a place, a calling, and an opportunity to fully investigate God’s purposes in their lives.

 

Through worship, study, community and service, St. John the Divine Youth Ministry seeks to transform youth and their families into committed disciples of Jesus Christ.

 

As a congregation of faithful believers within the Anglican Church where God’s pure Word is preached and the sacraments are duly administered, our Youth Ministry strives to make disciples through our being…

 

Bible-Based: We emphasize Bible study within a curriculum that is infused with Scripture. 

 

Christ-Centered: We encourage and model an intimate relationship with Jesus.

 

Spirit-Led: We follow God’s will through prayer and the study of God’s Word.

 

Prayerful: We pray for and with our youth. 

 

Joyful: We celebrate the Good News of Jesus Christ through genuine fellowship, worship and praise.

 

Relational: We seek to reach students in their own culture with the Gospel Scripture through relationships.
