6th-12th grade is a pivotal time in anyone’s life, and it is during this time where opinions and lifestyles begin to be shaped. It is our desire at Northstar Youth to instill in every student a desire to follow Jesus and seek him for the rest of their lives. It would be easy to have a high energy, emotionally-charged group, but our desire is not a hype for Jesus. Our hope is to see every student leave our group wanting to seek Jesus for the rest of life. We want to base our group off of John 15:16 because we desire to see each student “bear fruit that endures.”
We Meet Every Week!
Our Large Group meets Sunday Evenings at our Ministry Center (200 Country Club Dr SW) from 5-6:30 PM.
What We are Learning
Being all in for Christ, and why we should avoid living a double life
Meet the team.
We have a great team of youth leaders! We have a lot of fun, and we encourage students to invite their friends to each and every event and group time.
