Helping middle school and high school youth learn to navigate the journey of faith through weekly gatherings, fun events and small groups.
6th - 8th Grade students
Jesus said, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me." (Mt. 16:24) Cross Training is designed to help middle school students (6th-8th grade) navigate the journey of childhood into adulthood and inspire them to develop a faith of their own. Students have fun each week and spend time discovering what God has to say about their life, relationships, and the future.
9th - 12th Grade students
At St. John's we want every person to trust in Jesus in a way that transforms how they love God, themselves and the world around them. We especially want to connect with our high school youth to guide them in making wiser decisions, building stronger relationships, and developing a deeper faith. That's what LIVE is all about.
Summer Mission Trip
Each summer, high school youth and adults work with Group WorkCamps to repair and transform homes while growing closer to Jesus. At Workcamps, teenagers come together to serve individuals and communities while building strong, long-lasting relationships with their friends and youth leaders.
