The purpose of the Northminster Youth Ministry is to call young people (Middle School and High School) into the presence and ministry of Christ, to nurture them in their faith, and to faithfully care for their souls.  We accomplish this through:

WORSHIP — Honoring and praising God sincerely
DISCIPLESHIP — Growing and understanding God more deeply
FELLOWSHIP — Connecting and growing with others honestly
MINISTRY — Discovering and utilizing our gifts faithfully
OUTREACH — Sharing our experience with God truthfully

Want a place to gather with your friends… a place to have fun and talk… a place where everyone is accepted and everyone knows your name… a place that is safe?  This is the place!  Sunday Evening Youth Groups!  It’s a great place to be and make new friends!

Both our Middle School and High School youth groups meet at the same time on Sunday evenings from 6:00-6:30pm for dinner and 6:30-8:15pm for the Youth Program.  Come and see what God can do to transform you from the inside out.  We’ll play together, sing together, worship together, and talk together about how God wants to Renew, Restore and Revive us.  Come join us!

Contact Brian Ward  for more information.

Interested Youth will be/have been invited to join in full membership of the Adult Choir, or just for special occasions.  We don’t have enough Youth who are interested in committing to a dedicated Youth Choir at this time.  We hope to re-start the group on an ongoing basis when numbers support it.  To find out more, contact the Music Department.

You Belong Here Coffeehouse

Youth Sunday School has a combined class of Middle and High School students. The class now uses “Coffeehouse,” which is a topical curriculum tailored for tweens and teens. Each week, youth have lessons that help relate faith to everyday life! The youth meet in the “you belong here” coffeehouse in room 201! Join us for coffee, snacks, and great conversation!

Please contact Jennifer Filpi  if you would like to know more information about Youth Sunday School.


Begins in February and ends with Confirmation Sunday in May. Classes take place on Sunday afternoons from 4:30-6:00pm. All current 8th graders are welcome and encouraged to attend Confirmation classes.

Every year, we organize Youth  Conference  and Mission trips  for youth in Middle and High School. In the past, we have served God’s people in places like New Orleans, LA, and Puerto Rico; Asheville Youth Mission in Asheville, NC; inner city mission ministry in Charlotte, NC; and Honduras on an international mission trip.

Finally, we will  attend Youth conferences at Montreat Conference Center in NC for High School Youth and at Maryville College in TN for Middle School Youth.

These events, along with all of the programs we offer the Youth of our congregation, bond our kids to their church, to the idea of service to God and community, and to each other.
