Empowering Youth and Their Families for Lifelong Discipleship

Unpacking the Vision

Nick (1)
A Note from Pastor Nick

Our youth and families team follows the vision “Empowering Youth and Their Families for Lifelong Discipleship.” Everything we do with our young people, we do so that by the time they graduate from High School they have grown deep roots in the faith through biblical literacy, spiritual practices, relationships with other youth and mentoring adults as well as mission within and  outside the walls of Woods. The goal is that our young people “practice discipleship” now so that it comes naturally for them when they reach adulthood and beyond. You are invited to grow deep roots in the faith through programs, events, retreats, Sunday morning study, evening fellowships and more. Click around our site and find out how YOU can plug in as a parent or a youth. Click here for details about our vision and the scope and sequence for the youth programs. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us!
