Question: What are the ages involved?

Answer: If you are in high school, then you belong HERE 🙂



Question: What’s different about what you do compared to other churches?

Answer: As the ultimate goal is to give these kids an experience with Jesus, everything that we do is helping to create this environment.  I believe there are four areas that need to be covered in order to create a well-rounded youth ministry for these kids…

Worship – reaching up (connecting to God)

Discipleship – reaching in (personal spiritual growth)

Fellowship – reaching across (connecting with those around you who are ALSO pursuing God)

Evangelism – reaching out (sharing with other what God has given you)


Question: Who’s in charge?  How to contact?

Answer: My name is Pastor John Lubke and I am the youth pastor for The Place.  I’m looking forward to an AMAZING experience working with the youth of “The Place.”



Question: What kinds of stuff do you do?

Answer: We are continually looking for and implementing new ways of connecting high school students to God!  This is the foundation of EVERYTHING we do!  (check out the schedule below)
