TPC Youth (our weekly meetings) exists as a platform to build relationships with middle school and high school students in our community. We believe God has called us, in partnership with parents, to:
INVEST: in the next generation of young people in significant ways
INSTRUCT: them in the core doctrines and disciplines of the Christian faith along with principles for living healthy, wise and productive lives
INSPIRE: them by our example and challenge them to take faith-filled risks.
IGNITE: them with a passion for Jesus Christ, a love for the lost, a commitment to the local church, and finally, to launch them into the world prepared for life, for relationships, for service, and for leadership.
There are three environments for teenagers in our ministry. Each one is designed to strategically invite teenagers on a journey into deeper relationships with their peers, leaders, and Jesus. Each environment is designed with every teenager in mind - the kid who’s grown up in church and the first-time visitor too.
EVENTS: Throughout the year, we’ll host several big events designed to help teenagers connect with their peers and small group leaders. Events are often the environment where teenagers will walk into our ministry for the very first time.
WEEKLY PROGRAMS: Our weekly programs happen every single week. They’re designed to help teenagers grow in four key areas. (We’ll get to those in a minute.)
SMALL GROUPS: Small groups are the most important part of what we do. They happen almost every week in our programs, but the relationships built in small groups extend outside the walls of our church. They’re designed to connect every teenager with a consistent trustworthy adult and community of their peers.
