Youth Ministry

Refuge Youth Ministry is for 6th - 12th grade students.

We meet Tuesday nights from 7-9 in the Hacienda.

What does a Tuesday night look like?

We're glad you asked!

HANG OUT TIME

We enjoy each other's company so we simply hang out for the first half hour and catch up with each other. It's a time to enjoy some free snacks, play some basketball, soccer, toss a football or go a few rounds in the gaga pit.

GAMES!!!

What would a night be without games??? Outside games, inside games, active run-around games, sit-down-and-laugh games, team games, and every-man-for-himself games. Every week brings a different mix.

PRAISE AND WORSHIP

God alone is worthy of our devotion, praise, and worship. He is God and our Creator. He loved us first and we want to show Him some love in return. One way we do that is through praise and worship which is a regular part of our Tuesday nights.

RELEVANT LESSONS

We believe that people grow in their faith when they are engaged in conversation. We provide a short introduction to the topic of the night before the students split into small groups for discussion.

SMALL GROUPS

This is the backbone of what we do. Students split into gender-specific small groups where they develop deeper relationships while learning how to be stronger followers of Jesus Christ. This important part of our time together is how we spend the last half hour of the night. We look through the Bible, discuss what it says, and apply its teachings to our lives.

So who's in charge?

Donut Face

Pastor Chris, or Mr. Chris, has been involved in youth ministry since 1994. (Yeah, that’s a long time!) He has served as a volunteer, small group leader, junior high coordinator, and youth pastor. In addition to serving as youth pastor at Stagecoach Road, he is a full-time math teacher. 

 

 

Chris married his bride, Karen, in 1999 and has two daughters.

Star Wars. That pretty much covers me." - Christopher Gassler
