Youth Ministry is extremely exciting, dynamic, complex, and challenging. The reward of seeing young people transformed by the Gospel is what makes every late night, every tough conversation, and every one of our best efforts worth giving. It has been said “Adolescence is just a phase, don’t miss it” and that is what we are going to do: we are going to lean in, love big, and work to navigate one of the most challenging seasons of life with our students.

The relationships that begin at youth group can last a lifetime and the impact of one leader who faithfully loves and gracefully challenges a young person to greater things by living out the Gospel can change the trajectory of a life and someone’s eternity. Youth ministry matters and you have a part to play in the story that God is weaving in the lives of our students.


Jesus Is Why

Developing a relationship with Jesus is the heartbeat of Illumin8. Through His sacrifice on the cross, Jesus has freed us from the power of sin. We live in the wake of His grace and celebrate the power of His resurrection; we are free. Jesus brought you out of death and into life—your calling is to share the gospel with every person within reach. We gather each week in order that young people can hear and experience the Gospel and the hope we have in Christ.
