High School Youth Group: Grades 9-12
At Northview we are committed to reaching the next generation of students with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Youth ministry is a journey, not an event; it is marathon, not a sprint. It is about shepherding young people to walk deeper with Christ and building lasting relationships through community, worship, prayer, and fun!
High School Youth takes place on Thursday nights at 7:00pm. There are three distinct elements to our ministry:
- Campus LIVE Night (First and Fourth Thursday of each month, 7:00-9:15)
Students and leaders meet at the church for a time of large group community in a fun, welcoming environment. Campus LIVE nights usually start with a group game and then move into a time of teaching and worship. Typical evenings also include a small group discussion time, food, and fellowship!
- Community Group (Second Thursday, 7:00-9:15)
Community Groups consist of smaller groups of around 20-30 students. They provide a place for discussion-based teaching and discipleship, service projects, and community-building events. These medium sized groups help a large youth group feel small and can help integrate newcomers and visitors into an immediate relational community. Community Groups are a great place for students to grow in leadership as they use their gifts to serve each other, pray for each other, and study with each other.
- Core Group (Third Thursday, 7:00-9:15)
Core Groups consist of 2 or 3 leaders and approximately 10 students of the same grade and gender. These nights provide a place for more intentional discipleship, practical teaching, one-on-one mentorship, and building deep relationships.
New NHSY Tee-Shirts are available!

Bible Study – Tuesday Nights
Do you have a desire to grow deeper in your understanding of God’s Word and invest more into your relationship with Christ? Do you want to learn some Bible study skills and be held accountable in your personal Bible reading? Do you want to grow in friendship with other believers your age as you study the Bible together? Consider joining our Bible Study group this year!
The NHSY Bible Study group is open to students of all grades who want to dig deeper into God’s Word. The group will meet weekly on Tuesday evenings. The Bible Study will run in 4-6 week “series” with each series usually focused on a different book of the Bible. Students who want to join must commit to consistent attendance to every study in the series they sign up for. Students can choose to sign up for just one series to try it out or when it works in their schedule or they are welcome to remain in the group throughout the year.
Student Leadership Team
The Northview High School Youth Student Leadership Team is a place where students can invest more into their youth group through helping out at youth nights, participating in service projects, and using their gifts to serve their peers in new ways. It’s a place where students will be challenged to step out of their comfort zones, to lead by example, to grow in their faith, and to live with accountability.
The Student Leadership Team will meet once a month on Monday nights and members are expected to be consistent attendees at all regular youth nights and events. If you are interested in learning more about joining the team, chat with Ron, Luke or Levi and pick up an application!
