An authentic, Christian community for young adults to —

Gather. Grow. Go.

It does not matter where you are in your life or faith journey, all young adults are welcome to be a part of this ministry. The Young Adult Ministry (Y.A.M.) works to support and connect young adults and build authentic community.  Together young adults can:
Gather: Meet people, form friendships, and help one another journey through life.
Grow: Ask real questions about God and faith, participate in group discussions and devotionals, and deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ.
Go: Think seriously about how to use spiritual gifts, live out their calling, engage in the community and share God’s love with others.
