The Youth Ministry at New Jerusalem Church aims to help students 6th – 12th grade to find their identity and security in the unchanging truth of God’s Word. During a very complex season of life, the leaders, teachers, and volunteers within the Youth Ministry work together to support parents in the discipleship of their tweens and teens. Teens are taught using the Gospel Project curriculum as well as relevant study material from RightNow Media—video-based Bible Studies focused on the real-life issues that students face. Through Bible-based and student-centered teaching, students are given opportunities to learn what they believe, why they believe it, and how their faith should be applied in their day-to-day lives.
