Teenagers have many opportunities to grow as Christians at Pearce Church. The 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 Journey Teens programs 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.
