(GYM) Grace Youth Ministry

 

The GYM exists to connect with other disciples, worship God, grow in faith and obedience, serve the world, and reach the lost with the good news of Jesus. We accomplish our purposes and values through a variety of meetings and events.
We understand that students are not only the church of the future, they are the church of now. And with that in mind, we look for fun, creative, life-giving ways to speak God's truth into their lives so that they in turn can go and change their world through obedience to Jesus Christ.
Our community is made up of teenagers in public and private schools and homeschool students grades 7–12. It is our desire that each student involved in the GYM would make the decision to follow Jesus with their whole lives, understanding that the Christian faith isn’t just about Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, but encompasses the whole of who we are.
