“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
This is our heartbeat for The Village Youth. At its core, this is what we desire to be about. Our main focus in life is to love God and grow in our relationship with Him. God is for people, He loves people, and He desires to be in relationship with people. Since our God is for this, we should be also. We desire that every student that enters into The Village Youth radically encounters the love of God and because of it, radically love people the way God loves us.
6th - 12th grade


Sunday mornings at our McPherson Campus, The Village Youth gathers at 9:30a in the Fellowship Hall.  With a fun ice breaker, teaching in large group, and small group discussion, students will be challenged to go deeper in their walk with Christ, to develop friendships that point to Jesus, and to dig into the Word of God.

Our groups are currently split up into Middle School Girls, High School Girls, Middle School Boys & High School Boys! 



DNOW, which stands for Disciple-Now, is The Village Youth's annual in-town weekend retreat, formerly known as SHIFT weekend! This will be a weekend full of fun, interactive and inclusive games, biblical teaching, small-group discipleship and awesome fellowship with the rest of The Village Youth! The majority of the event will take place at our McPherson and Reilly Road campuses, but students will be staying at host home with students of the same gender and general age as well as at least two leaders. We are so excited for DNOW this year, and can't wait to see how the Lord uses it for His good!

  • This is for all students in 6th-12th grade for the 2023-2024 school year
    • Invite your friends to be a part of DNOW this year!
  • Cost is $75 and sign-ups are open online until February 1st

Sundays 5:00p - 7:00p
To us, this really is the best night of the week! Simply put: we love Jesus and we love you! Many times, life is tough. People let us down.

Our home is your home. Welcome! 
Raising Teens Support Group
Parenting is not for the faint of heart, and raising teens seems to make this reality even truer. Emotional ups and downs, often within the same hour, are a daily occurrence. Sometimes, you feel more like a taxi than a parent, shuttling kids around to extracurriculars, social events, and school demands. And then there’s technology. The world has changed so much. How do you navigate this? You are not alone.

Be a part of our Raising Teens support group, where you can learn from and encourage other parents as you are walking through this stage of life together. Conveniently, this group meets at the same time as The Village Youth!

Meets on Sunday Nights! Email us to find out when our next meeting will be!
Call us, email us, DM us, or text us.
Our ministry is our passion and we are here for you.
