Youth

Who is God creating us to be in the world?

In this stage of faith formation, we focus on students building meaningful relationships with God, peers, adult leaders and members of our communities. We build these relationships through energetic events, small group discussions, service-learning opportunities, and experiential worship.

Senior High Ministry

(10th – 12th grades)

High school is a time of joyful, messy, brave identity formation. Advent high school youth practice personal, interpersonal, and systemic boundary crossing in a safe and supportive community. We explore how to lament, celebrate, dialogue, show up, listen, and build meaningful relationships as spiritual practice. We recognize God in our vulnerable neighbors, in the community garden, in worship, and inside our hearts. We grapple with big questions and unfold into the sacred interaction of God’s story, our story, and the story of our broken and beautiful world.
