Southminster Youth Ministry

Being a student is difficult. Being a teenager is difficult. Being a Christian is difficult. Being all of these things in one of the most racially and ethnically diverse cities in America is even more difficult. How do you navigate being a Christian when some of your classmates and best friends belong to a different religion, or no religion at all?

The call to follow Christ is difficult, but it's the most important decision you will ever make. At Southminster we equip our youth to be followers of Jesus Christ in a world where it is progressively more difficult to proclaim the name of Jesus with confidence and love.

Acts 1:8 says, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." God has called us to be His witnesses. God has called us to show His love to everyone, because everyone needs to hear it. Who will go, if not us?

Youth Group

Youth gather together on Sunday nights from 5-7. We share a meal, study the Bible, encourage one another, and grow closer as a family. 

Check out the Youth Group calendar below!

Current Series - Modern Families

Around the holidays we spend much more time with family than usual. It should only take a quick look around to realize there are no perfect families (not even in the Bible), but that doesn’t stop us from comparing our families’ quirks, flaws, and shortcomings to the seemingly perfect lives of other families. In this 4-week series, we'll challenge students to give their families grace, seek resolution to their conflicts, trust God through difficult transitions, and treat more friends like family.

Unless otherwise noted all Youth Group events meet from 5-7 PM on Sunday nights in the Youth Lounge (second floor of school building)
