Journey Teens

Youth Ministry Director: Tom (TC) Corbett

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 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.

Online Equip Study Group (Sunday mornings; groups for grades 6-12)

Faith Formation through Bible Teaching
Christian education that emphasizes Bible learning, Christian beliefs, and following the example of Jesus. Watch on Facebook and Instagram right after the 10:30am worship service. (We plan to start in-person Sunday morning Equip groups in late 2020/early 2021.)

Bible Quizzing (Tuesday evenings; grades 6-12)

Bible Knowledge in Action
An engaging method of memorizing Bible passages to learn, understand, and apply the Word of God. The Bible Quiz team meets during the school year. (Bible Quizzing is scheduled to begin in late 2020/early 2021.) Contact Rob Distaffen at with questions.
