WELCOME TO YOUTH MINISTRY
Youth at Catch The Fire is an awesome place for anyone in Grades 7-12 to experience, learn and grow in understanding God's love for themselves and for others so that they are able to grow and mature their spiritual lives to have a life filled and fulfilled by God. We provide a place where youth have life changing encounters with the transformative love of the Father and the work of the Holy Spirit. We value the importance of authentic and vulnerable relationships for spiritual growth and this happens in the context of small groups on Friday nights, led by our team of young adults. Youth at Catch The Fire is for anyone in Grades 7-12 looking to grow in hunger and passion for God while building life-long friendships in a community where passionate youth are in pursuit of God!
