PEAKE YOUTH

Real truth can feel confusing, especially for teens these days. In Peake Youth, we invite students to build their lives on the foundation of the only Truth, Jesus Christ.

We’re committed to providing a place for Middle and High School students to connect with God, with other students, and with their leaders who are dedicated to helping students grow closer to Jesus. Everyone wants to belong to something, and Peake Youth centers around relationships: relationships with one another and with God. We believe that the full life is a life fully devoted to Jesus Christ.

FULL DEVOTION TO JESUS IS NORMAL

Mission

To reach teens and help them grow into fully devoted followers of
Jesus Christ.

Vision

Teens living for Christ.

Verse

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” JOHN 10:10

What we Do

Ministry Features

JOURNEY NIGHTS

Whether you’re exploring what it means to be a Christian or you’ve already made the decision to follow Jesus, we want to help you encounter God in a meaningful way. Journey Nights are our weekly service with games, teaching, and lots of community time. When you come, bring a friend with you!

HIGH SCHOOL: Tuesdays, 7P
MIDDLE SCHOOL: 
Wednesdays, 7P

SMALL GROUPS

Small groups are a safe place to ask questions, talk about life, and learn what a relationship with Jesus looks like. In your small group, you can find a group of friends who are dealing with the same things you are. You are not meant to go through life alone!  Small groups take place during the second half of Journey Nights.

LIVING LIFE TO THE FULL

PARENT RESOURCES

Parents, you are the primary spiritual influence for your teen. We want you to equip and empower you to be your children’s spiritual leader by bringing you tools and resources that help you start important God conversations, foster prayer, and create moments of worship in your home.

Common Questions

Where does my teen check-in?

You will see our Peake Youth flag as soon as you arrive on campus! That is our Journey night entrance. Head through the glass doors and a Welcome Team member will be there to greet your teen! 

How does my teen know who His or her small group leader is?

Once checked in, a Welcome Team member will introduce your teen to his or her small group leader. 

WHAT TRAINING DO PEAKE YOUTH LEADERS GO THROUGH?

Every Peake Youth Leader fills out an application and goes through our interview process. In addition, every leader and volunteer at Peake Youth goes through a routine background check. 

Maybe God isn’t as complicated as you think.
