DRIVEN Youth Ministry is for students in 6th - 12th grade & meets in the newly renovated LOFT space at North Main. Park in the ORANGE lot & enter through the ORANGE doors for easy access to the LOFT.
We meet regularly on Thursdays during the school year from 6:00 - 8:30 PM in the LOFT.
We start out with fun, high energy games & then move into a Large Group teaching time. We then break out into small groups (Jr High & Sr High) for further discussion. We finish our night with a prayer requests & a prayer circle. Our lessons are biblically based & address topics that focus in on helping students grow spiritually, examine biblically, decide personally, connect relationally, & serve actively.
Our philosophy of student ministry is a part of a bigger strategy called Orange®, which believes that two influences combined make a greater impact than two separate influences. For us, those two influences are church and home. We want to provide tools to connect students with their parents, their small group leader and to grow a faith they can call their own.
We acknowledge that parents are the primary influence in the life of a student. With that in mind, we want to come alongside parents & equip them to support their student’s faith journey. We include regular ParentCue® discussion cards for you to have a starting point of conversation about our current topic & learn from each other.
Your student's safety is important to us & we want you to know that all of our youth leaders have their clearances & have completed background checks.
We have various other outside activities for youth. We also regularly plan group trips, activities, & outings such as bowling, laser tag, lock-ins, & retreats. Whitehall Camp & Conference Center is our Western PA Church of God Campground & hosts several awesome camps for youth & families throughout the year.
