LIFE TEEN & EDGE


We recognize our youth as the Church today,  calling them to conversion and intentional discipleship by offering a life-changing encounter with Jesus and formation.

We have youth ministry designed for two formative age groups–middle school and high school. The primary goal of our programming is to meet tweens and teens where they are at, drawing them into a deeper understanding of faith.

Our emphasis is on a relationship with Jesus within the sacramental Church. We challenge our young people starting in middle school and throughout high school through the process of growing from an encounter with Jesus to becoming His disciples, all the while changing their world.

Life Teen (Grades 9-12)
