Youth and Families

Our primary job in youth ministry is to serve, support and empower families.

Our goal is to help families do what they do better than anyone else: instill a rich and full sense of Christian identity in their children, and equip them to be the Church in the world.

Christ Church youth are engaged in service, Bible study, and other opportunities for spiritual growth in a safe and fun community of peers and caring adults. We work hard to stay connected with students through formal and informal programs of the Church, as well as provide comforts of a spiritual home for young people as they grow in their faith. Perhaps most importantly, Christ Church provides youth with a place where they can get to know a “great cloud of witnesses” — adults who share a common sense of values and a common delight in teenagers. 

If we can be of support to your family, please feel free to contact Adam Klevenhagen or Deborah Shoemake at any time.
