Welcome to the Point Youth Ministry, where the excitement never ends and the sense of belonging is strong. Our mission is clear: we aim to guide students on a journey of discovery, deepening their understanding of Jesus Christ and fostering a thriving relationship with Him.

Our secret? We know that fun is a powerful tool in pointing students toward Christ. While each of our unique campuses has its own style, they all share the same values and mission. We’ve created one unified ministry that empowers students to learn, grow, and thrive in their faith, regardless of the campus they attend.

Safety is paramount, and we prioritize check-ins and full participation from every student. Let’s dive into what each campus has to offer August – May.

Other Opportunities

Missions

Grand Point Church is a missions minded community that desires to see life change happen in our community and around the world. In the past the youth ministry has done missions work in Harrisburg, the Bronx NYC, and Central America, and will continue to provide missions opportunities for our students in the upcoming years. Being involved in missions has a way of helping students take a leap of faith and experience how important they are to the Kingdom of God.

Serving

At the heart of our ministries are caring leaders who volunteer their time and passion to serve our children and youth. All volunteers have undergone our background screening requirements and participate in our leadership covenant. Training meetings are offered throughout the year to equip our teams to take their own “next steps” as we encourage young people to do the same.

“How can I get involved?”

Interested in making an impact on the Next Generation? Ask about volunteer opportunities that work with a variety of schedules, interests, and experience levels! Stop by one of our welcome desks to pick up a volunteer packet, or visit the volunteer portal.

Bible Quizzing

Bible quizzing is a great way for students to familiarize themselves with the Word of God. Quizzing is a competitive Bible memory program that helps students retain Biblical characters, stories, and verses, and travel to other churches, seeing how the body of Christ is interconnected across communities.
