Welcome to Encounter Youth Ministry

Encounter Youth Ministry is a ministry of Village Chapel Church to Middle School and High School youth (grades 6th-12th). Like to rest of us, Middle School and High School youth are looking for purpose and meaning in life as they struggle with their own sin, hurts and bad habits. We whole heartedly believe the cure for all of those is a relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus was 100% man and 100% God who died on the cross and rose again on the third day to redeem the world (all of us) from ours sins, hurts, and bad habits. His sacrfice meant our freedom from our sins, hurts and bad habits! We believe that anyone who has a relationship with Jesus should be equiped to live for God (#livefor1). So that is our why we do what we do: "we equip middle school and high school youth to live for God." (#livefor1) How do we do that?

Middle School 7th Grade Girl:
"I started coming to Middle School youth group for my friends and the games because I grew up in the church. But as I have grown in my relatinship with Jesus, the leaders have helped m grow in my faith."

Mom of an 8th grader:
My daughter doesnt want to miss MIddle School Youth Group. I am proud to be part of a church that is helping our kids learn more about God and doing it in a way they understand.

High School Senior:
“I have gone to church my entire life but it didn’t mean anything, until I had my time and place with Jesus. By inviting your friend to church/youth group you are inviting them to have their time or place.”
