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 students. They provide a place for discussion-based teaching and discipleship, giving students an environment where they are free to ask questions and work out the fundamentals of faith. 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.
