Our desire is to see every student in the Fargo-Moorhead area come into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.

Pastor Cal Thompson

Our Youth Ministry is on fire for the Holy Spirit. We are ecstatic about what God is doing in the students of the Fargo-Moorhead area, and we are passionate about raising up the next generation of leaders to reach their schools, homes, and workplaces with the love of Jesus.

Each Wednesday service incorporates a fun, informal hangout time in our gymnasium, where students can play ball together, enjoy snacks, or sit and talk, followed by time spent in worship and the Word of God.

Events

FINE ARTS: DISCOVER / DEVELOP / DEPLOY
Each person has unique talents instilled in them by God for the purpose of worshiping Jesus Christ and expanding His kingdom. Our annual Fine Arts Festival provides students with an opportunity to discover their gifts and develop their skills, then challenges them to deploy their gifts in ministry.
Although competitive elements are present, providing a competition venue is not the primary mission of Fine Arts Festival.
Through Fine Arts Festival, students are given the opportunity to have their skills evaluated by qualified leaders who encourage excellence, offer ideas for improvement and inspire students to use their gifts in the local church, their community and around the world in ministry or the marketplace. Scores are not as important as lessons learned, experience gained and skills developed.
