Hello Parents,

Our church is passionate about serving families and enabling them to build sustainable lives to stay and thrive in NYC. We are honored to come alongside families as your young person is guided towards Christ and inspired to live out the way of Jesus in their time and culture. Youth of The City aims to make Sunday and Wednesday Nights one of the most impactful times of your teens week as they learn what it means to be an active, thriving member of the Body of Christ. We believe YOTC is a vital extension of the adult service and we work diligently at giving them the opportunity grow into the young men and women God as called them to be.

We look forward to partnering with you as your teens grows in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Highest Regard,   

Joey Yager
Director of Youth Ministry

Our teaching at every level focuses on the five values of our church body:

Gospel - We will share the good news of what God has done in Jesus. We want teens to encounter Jesus in personal relationship. 

Identity - We will understand, grow and walk in the new identity we have through the work of Christ.   We will do this by learning to follow the ways of Jesus.  

Community - We will intentionally engage with fellow believers and learn to serve within our church and in our cultural context. 

Mission - We will join Gods redemptive work both in NYC and beyond.  We will join with city renewal projects and learn at times what God is up to around the globe.  

Power - We will seek to know the Holy Spirit and rely on his power to be made know in our generation.  We will learn to pray together, share testimonies, and edify one another.
