youth ministry at Trinity

A few years ago Trinity experienced a tremendous shift in Youth Ministry. The way we'd been doing Youth Ministry just wasn't working anymore. So after a period of discernment, Trinity discovered Fuller Seminary's youth ministry model called "Sticky Faith."

What is Sticky Faith? Check out the video below.

The Fuller professors and researchers discovered that there are three critical principles for the life of a church to engage in to help nurture a life long faith in teens. These principles are:

  • Preach a grace based gospel, rather than focusing on behaviors
  • Involve teens in the whole life of the church, pursue inter-generational not multi-generational ministry
  • Empower parents as the most significant faith influence for their child.

Trinity guides every decision made in Youth Ministry with these three principles in mind. We don't have a weekly youth group gathering because we prefer to invite, empower, and involve teens in the whole life of the church.

Sunday School Year Schedule (Phish Phood)

Middle School students (grades 6th-8th) will start in worship and then be excused to the youth room where Grapple is the name of the game! We’ll explore tough questions and come up with the Bible’s smartest answers. Through community building, games, prayers and dares the kids will ask questions about faith, choices and relationships. They’ll learn how to search the Bible for answers and build a faith they can own. 

Middle School Fun Nights

Once a month the middle school students get together for an evening of food and fun. This year the fun nights happen once a month on Thursdays from 6:30pm-8:00pm in Fellowship Hall on September 19, October 24, November 21 and December 12.  Email Pastor Kurt for more info.

If you have any questions about middle school ministry email Pastor Kurt.
