Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry

Vision: Lighthouse’s youth ministry exists to come alongside parents in maturing the youth to be lifelong disciples of Jesus and to equip them for a life of obedience and worship to Him, in fulfillment of Lighthouse’s overall mission to make gospel-centered disciples who exalt and proclaim Christ.

Youth Ministry General Information

The information below is the ministry’s normal look and participation schedule during the COVID season:

We offer a variety of resources for middle school and high school students in grades 6 through 12:

  • Twice (or three times, if the month has 5 weeks) per month, our youth group meets for a time of Bible teaching, singing, games, prayer, accountability & fellowship.
  • Once per month, our youth group meets for a time of fun and fellowship over Zoom!
  • Once per month, our youth group does not meet, because we hold monthly youth staff meetings on the same evening.

Stream Musical Worship

Kairos is our high school ministry. Kairos is a Greek word that means, “a time of unique opportunity.” We believe that our high schoolers truly live in a unique season of life, where they can leverage their role as followers of Jesus in seeking the renewal and welfare of their respective campuses and cities.
