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

Vision

A community full of teens who live out loud 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

GROWTH GROUPS

At Peake Youth, we are devoted to helping you grow into a fully-devoted follower of Jesus Christ. As part of this growth, we offer various classes throughout the year to help you grow in your knowledge of the Bible and to build community with other teens. Since we believe that your faith impacts your daily life, we also offer several Care Groups and classes through our Care Center to strengthen your behavioral health, including our popular “Stress Management for Teens” classes. More information will be posted as registration opens for each class or group.

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.
