The role of Youth Ministries at St. Luke’s is to help kids ages 12-18 develop a strong, deep, personal relationship with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

 

This channel is your gateway to more information about the following topics [if there’s a live link, click on it for more details]:

 

Episcopal Youth Community [EYC]--We are the community in the church for 6th – 12th graders and the adults that volunteer their time and love for these great kids. Our purpose is to learn how Christ can be a part of our lives and how we can share that with those around us. 

 

Christian Education for Youth 6th-12th GradeOur amazing Christian Education staff and volunteers use engaging lessons to help our youth learn how to apply Biblical truths to their own lives in the 21st century. For youth, we have three classes on Sunday morning:

  • 6th-7th Grade

  • Confirmation [8th Grade and Up]—this class helps kids prepare to reach the next milestone in their faith journey by being “confirmed” as Episcopalians by a Bishop

  • Senior High

Youth Music Ministry:  “At His Feet” Praise Band--AHF are dedicated youth who put their time and talents to worshipping God with drums, guitars, vocals, and awesome contemporary and classic Christian music. Their performances are not to be missed, as they like to “amp the excitement level” at church.

 

Worship Support Ministry—The Acolyte Ministry provides support for all our worship services. Youth carry the crosses, candles, and flags so important in our worship tradition. They also help the priests at the altar. See the sidebar for this month's schedule. 

 

Mission Trips--These are the journeys we take together to do the work that God has for us. Every summer our Jr. High and Sr. High groups go out with a heart full of service and dedicated to reaching out to those in the communities that we travel to. It is a time of service, fun, spiritual highs, and group bonding like none other. The memories from these trips are shared for years after, the impact you may have on someone else’s life may last even longer.

 

Vacation Bible SchoolSt. Luke’s most over-the-top program of the year needs the energy and enthusiasm of our youth volunteers, who have a blast while helping us run this amazing summertime out-reach ministry. 

 

Volunteers in Youth MinistriesWe can’t run Youth Ministries  without the support of adult volunteers who “get” youth. 

  • Safeguarding God’s Childrenthis program insures that our children, youth, and adults are aware of and protected from abuse. All volunteers are required to take 6 hours of training on this topic and have a current background check on file with the church in order to serve in children’s or youth programs.

With questions, comments, or concerns, or to volunteer to serve in any of our programs, please contact our Director of Youth Ministries, Jimmy Cazin at at 813-504-3158 or by e-mail.
