Our Mission

To partner alongside parents to foster a loving environment in which teens (high school & middle schoolers) can see God, explore who He created them to be, & impact their community.

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.
