Youth Ministry


Our youth ministry assists parents in developing their teenagers to become God-centered, spiritually discerning, mature believers who love God, surrender to the Lordship of Jesus, and walk in the Spirit. Youth Group meets Wednesdays from 6:00-8:00 PM at Cherokee Christian School, in the upper building cafe.  This is a time of teaching, worship, small-group discussion, and fellowship.

How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your Word.

Psalm 119:9




We are currently studying Colossians on Wednesday nights, led by Caleb Byrd. This time of worship & teaching is followed by small groups for discussion and application.


Our summer and winter camps are opportunities to encourage and challenge the students in their faith while also grow and strengthen their relationships with each other. Save the date for Youth Winter Camp 2023 – January 6-8.

Our pilgrim songs

The student ministry bands have recorded and released original music under the name Our Pilgrim Songs as they study through books of the Bible. They have written and recorded songs covering Phillipians, Ephesians, Hebrews 9-12, John 14-17, and 1 Peter.

Ministry Philosophy

We believe that the years of transition from childhood to adulthood are not to be squandered in immaturity and rebellion. These years are also are an age of opportunity to train and equip children like no other season of life. Therefore, we strive to impact their lives and pray for heart transformation through the teaching of God’s Word, our involvement, and our example.

We will also encourage parents to remain engaged in the lives of their teens, to protect them from godless influences, and to rise to the special role they have in raising their children. We will strive to have an atmosphere in our ministry where it is natural for teens and adults to relate together. We desire to see more teenagers who are polite, respectful and friendly, having a desire to gain wisdom from Godly adults.
