Jr. High is one of the most influential times that our young people will ever have in their lives. It's a time of increased responsibility, seeking out their identity, and establishing personal boundaries and standards of their own. We empower our Jr. High kids to find their identity in Christ and not pursue it in sports, friends, clubs, activity, or performance.
They do matter and can make a difference. 1 Timothy 4:12 says "Let no one despise you for your youth, but rather be an example in word, conduct, speech, faith, and purity." The is our heart cry for the Jr. High age. They are example to their families, schools, and community.
We look at this time in their lives as a time moving from renting their relationship with Christ from their parents to taking over ownership of their own. We partner with parents to empower and equip our teens to be bold and confident in who God has created them to be.
