We don’t have a traditional youth group at Vintage. Many of us who grew up in church remember that the most meaningful aspect of youth group was having an adult who cared about us.
With that it mind, we are currently experimenting with a mentoring approach to youth ministry. Each of our teens are invited to connect with an adult from our community in an intentional mentoring relationship. Sometimes they’ll go see a movie together, while other times they might grab a cup of coffee after school.
Our hope is that our teens will know that they are loved and valued by adults who want to help them as best they can follow in the way of Jesus.
