Forming life long disciples of Jesus

We love welcoming 6-12th graders from all around the New River Valley and Montgomery county to join us for youth group!


Do you want to know how the Bible applies to your life?
Are you looking for a Jesus-centered community of 6-12th graders and leaders?
Are you curious about how to live a life for Christ?

Our goal is to form life long disciples of Jesus. We work towards this goal by encouraging and equipping students to be and make disciples through studying and applying God's word, encouraging and welcoming each other in with the love that God first loved us with, and living their lives as ambassadors for Christ in every room they walk into.
We are called to be and make disciples
"Therefore, GO and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you."
Matthew 28:19-20
We are told to encourage one another with the love that Christ first loved us with
"So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”
John 13:34-35
We are challenged to be ambassadors for Christ in every area of our lives
"So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us..."
2 Corinthians 5:20

What We are Learning
"Here Is The Lamb of God"
Who is Jesus? Is this just a good man? Or is He more? We're opening up the gospel accounts of the life of Jesus and studying  about WHO He is, and WHO we are in relation to the Son of God who seeks after us and wants a loving relationship with us.

Meet the team.

Philip Beaver

Northstar Youth Minister

Philip has been the youth minister here since the summer of 2021 and is excited and humbled by what God has done, and continues to do at Northstar Youth. Before stepping into this role, he was a leader in his home church's youth group and on the summer youth team at Northstar. He met his wife, Emma, while they were in youth group and got married in 2020. Philip is passionate about reaching youth with the Gospel message and showing them how to live a life for Jesus no matter their age.

In addition to Philip, we have 14 volunteer youth leaders that help make Wednesday night youth groups happen and point students to Jesus! These volunteers are just as passionate about reaching the next generation and leading them in small group discussions to help students dive deeper into what God is teaching them.
