Northstar Youth Group


ReVerb’s Youth Group exists to Reach, Renew, and Revive the youth of the NRV. We want to reach the youth with the gospel, renew their minds through the word of God, and revive the area with the life that we find in the gospel of Jesus Christ. We achieve our goals by:

  • Love: Because of God’s love, the leaders of Reverb’s Youth Group desire to spend time with youth and share their own lives with the kids.

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-45) 

  • Reach: One of our goals as a ministry is to tell students of the New River Valley about forgiveness and hope in Jesus Christ.
  • Renew: Our Sunday night group meetings serve the purpose of biblical teaching, intentional discipleship, and the renewal of focus each week. Each Sunday night after large group, our youth break out into smaller groups to provide a time for building friendships, ask questions and renew one another with encouragement.

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)

  • Revive: The NRV can only be reached by genuine love for God and love for others. As our overflow of God’s love shines through us, we begin to share the love of Christ in the gospel to our peers, enemies, and the people we do not even know. It is only through Jesus Christ that life can be obtained.

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.” (Ephesians 2:4-5)
