THE CHOSEN YOUTH
"For you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's cherished possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light." 1 Peter 2:9
The Chosen Youth exists to Implore teenagers to follow Christ and Unite with other Christians, teaching them to Cherish God as they Unearth their God-given talents and use them to Serve others; everything in an effort to Mature in Christ.
The Chosen Youth is not just a place to teens to go to check the "church" commitment off their list. The Chosen Youth seeks to challenge teens to search out who God says they are, through Scripture and mentorship, and to seek out His purpose for their lives. We provide a safe place to process and receive support through the tumult of teenage life. We provide a fun community where students can be themselves, regardless of neighborhood, color, or school. We desire to help students feel seen, heard, and loved, as well as equip them for the challenges that may come in college and beyond. When our teenagers can see themselves through the lens of how much they are loved by their Almighty Creator God, we know that they are getting to a place where they can sustain a life of truly being "on fire" for Jesus.
We are blessed to have such incredible and dedicated Youth Pastors!
