Our youth ministry exists to reach our friends for Christ where they are, help them grow in Christ, and teach them so they are equipped to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives.
At GSM we offer multiple ways for students to encounter and grow in Jesus. Our Youth Group and Small Group gathering are the foundational teaching and relationship building times for students. From here we give students opportunities for deeper spiritual growth through discipleship, outreach, service, and leadership training.
