youth ministry


The goal of Youth Ministry at Good Shepherd is to equip young people for a lifelong journey of growing in the knowledge and love of God. Every youth at Good Shepherd is provided with opportunities to participate in transcendent worship, spiritually formative learning, and transformative service. Our programs involve weekly worship and Bible study, community service and missional outreach, and lots of good food and fun.
