"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12: 1-2
Park Street Youth
We are a community of teenagers and leaders who love God and each other, and who love to serve in the church, the community, and the world. Our large and small group activities are designed to strengthen our faith and to create openings for fellowship within the Body of Christ.
One strength of our ministry lies in the personal relationships that are fostered between our youths and the adult leaders. The committed group of volunteer leaders seeks to be actively involved in the lives of each of our youths.
Our hope is that through the Park Street community our youths will be transformed into devoted followers of Christ.

Annual Mission Trips:
Opportunities for middle school and high school students each summer. Past trips venues include: Paraguay, New Orleans, Vermont, West Virginia and South Africa. This past summer we had a 13-day missions experience in Medellin, Columbia. A mud-slide blocked the road to the airport so we stayed for 17 days instead! http://parkstreetyouth.com/
"Student ministry played a huge role in my life growing up. It was through a student ministry event that I called on Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. I had many great Christian men pour into my life, which ended up cultivating my call into ministry. My passion is for seeing students transformed by the love of Jesus Christ."
Adam Herndon, Director of Youth Ministries
Some food for thought from Adam's Blog:
- Can you disagree with someone’s lifestyle or religious beliefs and love them?
- How do we share our faith with people who believe radically different than we do?
- What does God think about this situation?
