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.

Current Series - Restored

With so many incredible stories to explore in the Bible, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that God has been telling one singular story since the beginning of time, from His creation, to our sin, to the good news of Jesus, to our mission today. In this 4-week series, you’ll help students discover the big story of God, their place in that story, and how they can share that story with others.

Youth Group Calendar


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