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.”
