Youth Ministries

The heart of youth ministry is to help students grow
in their relationship with Christ.

Ministry for Youth

St. John’s has a long history of valuing our youth. Since the church’s founding in 1922, there has always been a specific person on staff to guide youth to be followers of Jesus. As early as 1947, the youth have led all aspects of worship on Youth Sunday. Congregational support and leadership opportunities continue to this day.

Our Leadership

St. John’s supports youth in a variety of ways, from supporting their service and mission efforts financially to contributing to their formation during Sunday activities.

St. John’s youth have built 14 Habitat Houses and have served in Puerto Rico, New York City, Ottawa, Washington D.C., and Miami.

Our Community

SJBC Youth participate in local service throughout the year! We also have an in-town immersion that focuses on serving our local community.

Local Partners include Hope Chapel Outreach, Adopt-A-Stream, Charlotte Rescue Mission, CROP Walk, QC Family Tree, Baby Bundles, Charlotte Family Housing, Friendship Trays, Crisis Assistance, and Loaves and Fishes.

Our Relationships

We encourage SJBC Youth to build intergenerational relationships. This includes inviting youth to serve with younger children as well as participating in church-wide fellowship events.

Adults of all ages serve as Sunday School teachers, service project leaders, Youth Resource Team, and SNL leaders.

Our Faith

No matter where you are in your faith journey, SJBC Youth is a place where you are welcome to be your authentic self and ask questions. We seek to be a loving, inclusive, community where you encounter compassion and a desire to make the world a better place. This is what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
