Love people so radically that they wonder why. Jefferson Bethke
BYouth exists to lead students and to ignite and awaken this generation of middle and high school students to live their life through Jesus. We disciple students with weekly worship, fellowship, and Bible study. Every lesson is contextualized and shared with love.
You can expect snacks, fellowship, worship, a message, and some games. Don't forget your Bible and notebook!
BYouth Small Groups
At BYouth, we call small groups "Crew Time." Crew time happens after each lesson and is designed for students to dive deeper by discussing what was taught.
