Our Mission

We partner with parents, our small groups, and God's Spirit, giving our youth opportunities to experience and grow into fully devoted followers of Jesus.

We focus on three primary relationships (all meant to help bring us closer to God):

  • Parent-Teen Relationships,
  • Mentor-Teen Relationships,
  • Teen-Teen Friendships.

Our primary goal is to help parents engage in the spiritual lives of their kids, but we also deeply believe in consistent mentoring & close friendships. 

We have weekly & monthly activities to help foster these relationships & help our youth see God. They are free to be themselves while they learn about their lives & their faith with their peers.

If you would like to know more or get involved, check out our Instagram or contact our Youth & Family minister, Nick Shoff, at nickshoff@nrcoc.com.
