Youth Groups at Edgewood

Building a community of students dedicated to following Jesus in a way that compels others to do the same. 

Youth Ministry at Edgewood

Edgewood's Youth Groups exist to introduce middle and high school students to Jesus Christ and help them become His fully devoted followers. We have only two rules at; 1. have a ton of fun. 2. Be serious about our faith. You may think those don’t go together, but I think our students will tell you they go quite well together. We have gospel-centered teaching from the Bible, strive to create a safe environment for students to ask questions and explore the faith, and eat Cheetos all in one night.  We also believe that faith in action can be one of the biggest ways to learn. Service projects and road trips are scheduled throughout the year. Oh, did we mention an annual event called Districts? (picture 3,000+ students, caffeine, and Jesus...yeah, awesome!).

Your First Visit

When you come to our Youth Group during the school year, there will be someone to greet you at the door and welcome you. We will have you put your name and some basic contact information on a card and then give you a brief tour of what Edgewood looks like on a Youth Ministry night. There will be group games for you to join, delicious snacks to eat, and plenty of friends to connect with and get to know! Most importantly, we won’t embarrass you or make you share your life story in front of the group when you come. We will, however, make sure you feel welcome and that you have a place to belong!

What our programs look like

The heart of the Youth Ministry at Edgewood centers around our gatherings called BURST (6-8th grade, 6-7:30 pm) and HighLife (9-12th grade, 8-9:30 pm), as well as special retreats, conferences, and mission trips.  We typically gather as a large group for games, snacks, building relationships, worship, prayer, and teaching.  We also break into small groups (broken up by grade and gender) for deeper discussion, encouragement, prayer, study of the Word, and accountability. Through all of it, we have tons of fun!

I want to personally invite you to join us for an evening of BURST or HighLife.  I know and trust that God wants to and will work in your life, just as I have seen him do for so many students here. I invite you to come and see!"

I’ve been at Edgewood for 11+ years. My first real youth group experience at Edgewood! God used those very important years to shape my faith and led me to go to school for full-time ministry. Now, I want to bring many of those same experiences back to the students.
