We encourage our youth to be effective ambassadors for Christ (2 Cor 5:20) by developing Knowledge, Wisdom, and Character in the pursuit of sharing their faith and inviting others to various youth activities to expose them to the gospel of Truth
Meetings and Bible Studies
We have several activities for 7th grade through senior high youth including regular group meetings at 7:30 pm the first and third Wednesday of each month. Worship, (youth leading their own praise and worship music), games, and teaching are all focused on discovering biblical truths to guide us in an uncertain world, and finding and making authentic, trusting friendships while we’re at it.
Combined Youth and Young Adults Christmas Party:
Major Annual Character and Maturity Building Events
These weekend retreats are typically once in the fall and once in the spring and bring two other regional SouthEast Church Alliance (SECA) youth groups together at a site central to the regional churches and provides “Momentum” throughout the year between other major events.
These retreats also offer excellent opportunities for our young adults to grow by leading key components of the event and doing some teaching.
We gather for extended, dynamic praise and worship, great teaching on youth-relevant topics, and fulfilling fellowship, games, and food!
Our region of churches from Virginia to Florida join forces for a week-long, life-transforming period of training designed to bolster faith and equip the youth and young adults to confidently share the gospel. Set at Awaken Church in Jacksonville, FL, we have an engaged pace of teaching-style and hands-on learning, balanced by down time to reflect on the experience and enjoy time at the beach.
Similar to the Momentum Retreats, these events are largely led and organized by aspiring young adults who are given various levels of leadership responsibilities and experiences.
Faithwalkers is an annual Tom Short Campus Ministries conference in Asheville, NC from 12/29 through 1/2 of the New Year. We typically caravan in family vehicles on the way there and enjoy incredible worship, life-changing teaching, and practical seminars along with some fun times of fellowship and relaxation.
