Pearce Teens

Journey Teen Programs

Teens have many opportunities to grow as Christians here at Pearce. Youth ministry programs help them understand what it means to trust God, discover the joy of a personal relationship with Christ, respond to the Holy Spirit’s guidance, and put their Christian faith into action.

Our activities encourage teenagers to: learn from the Bible; follow Jesus’s example by loving God and loving others; worship God as a regular part of their daily lives; understand what we believe as Christians, why we believe it, and how to explain it; develop a life that reflects the love of Christ.

In each program, teens are guided by Christian leaders who journey with them through the highs and lows of teenage life.
