We all need Jesus.  As kids get older their peers become a great influence.  As parents and as a church we want the main influence in our children’s lives to be Jesus Christ.  This often happens in group settings as we shepherd our youth into a community that follows Christ.  God made us all different, and knowing that, as a youth department we provide different opportunities to engage in an environment that fits.  Some kids feel comfortable in smaller settings, and some thrive in the larger and louder settings.  Each opportunity for engagement and discipleship listed below is led by trusted volunteer leaders that are part of our covenant community and possess a zeal for Jesus and youth ministry.  The quality of our volunteer leaders, their love for their Jesus, and their passion to relate this reality to our youth is an incredible blessing.

For more information on youth activities, please contact our Director of Youth Ministries, Aric Moussette (828) 253-3316, ext. 305.

Bolivia Youth Missions Trip


We are going to Bolivia! After I got back from an exploratory trip to Casa de Esperanza, I knew that this was going to be the greatest place to take our youth group. Casa de Esperanza is an orphanage that cares for 80 kids. They provide safe shelter for orphans and adopt the children into a permanent family. Fidel and Charo Corrales are the caregivers who run the “Casa”. They love and care for all the children in the way that Jesus cares for us. As anyone who has visited Casa de Esperanza can attest to, everything that happens there is gospel-centered. From daily tasks to group discipleship, Fidel and Charo share the love of Jesus with all of the children. The Casa de Esperanza team would like to give other families the opportunity to join them in their mission and serve the children with both relationship building and financial support.

The Casa is located in Cara Navi which is a 4 hour drive from La Paz International Airport.
