Welcome to Youth Ministry
Welcome to Youth Ministry

At Northwest, we believe in investing in people of all ages, and our youth ministries are no different. In this┬ásection of the website, you will find information about our age-specific youth ministries, but youth are not only involved in designated youth ministries. You will find youth volunteering with children’s ministry, helping with Vacation Bible school, delivering Brown Bag lunches, serving at Church for All People and Manna Cafe, and much more.

Youth Group
Youth Group

Youth Group is led by Pastor Chris Rinker and Zach Peterson, Associate Coordinator of Youth Ministries.

Youth Group is for students in 6th-12th grade. Youth meet most Sunday nights from 6:30-8pm, September-May. The typical Sunday schedule is a game followed by worship and Bible study. Youth group is led by Pastor Chris Rinker.

In addition to the regular Sunday night structure, there are game nights, service nights, and outings. We also have periodic special events such as lock-ins (overnight at the church), retreats, and summer mission trips. Youth group is intended to help youth build relationships with peers, grow in their faith, and serve the community.
