Victory Youth

Victory Youth

Victory Youth exists to lead middle and high school students into their own authentic relationship with God.

The mission for our ministry is,
“Students changing their world one decision at a time”.

Their world means their school, their friends, their future, their peers, their state, their country, their world.

Decisions like...
Accepting Christ, following Him, to pray, to grow, to lead, to invite, to bring, to include, to obey God, to remain pure, to love.

What to Expect

Thursday Nights

Our youth services take place every Thursday night at the same time as the main church service. We start at 7pm with a youth-led service consisting of games, worship led by our youth worship team, and relevant Bible-based discussions. Middle and high school students stay together for the first part of our services and then they separate after worship for the teaching time.

Sunday Mornings

We offer classes for middle school students during 1st service on Sundays. Students join the main morning services for praise and worship, then head to youth in classroom 7 when the kids are dismissed. We encourage all high schoolers to sit in the main service with their leaders and family on Sunday mornings.

Junior Youth

Our Junior Youth Ministry serves middle school students in grades 6-8. We are passionate about investing in the lives of middle schoolers at a pivotal time in their developmental years. They are finding out who they are and we want them to discover the truth of who they are in CHRIST and begin to seek out the unique purpose He has for them in this world. We will also start to provide them with serving and leadership opportunities that correspond to their particular budding gifts and talents.

Senior Youth

Our Senior Youth Ministry serves high school students in grades 9-12. We are passionate about preparing this age group to be launched into their future, fully understanding the WHY behind what they believe. Fully equipped to live a significant life… fully equipped to impact those God places in their unique sphere of influence.


We hold many special events on weekends throughout the year. We host these events to create opportunities for students to connect, have fun, and invite friends! Keep an eye on our upcoming events calendar to see what’s coming!

Youth Ministry Excel Program

This is our student discipleship program! It’s a 6 week program that runs over the summer months. The program has 3 main focuses – serving, peer leadership, and Bible reading!

All students who sign up are paired with a growth coach from our youth leadership team. Students will check in with their growth coach each week to talk about their leadership project, share their memory verse and take-aways from their Bible reading, and serving experiences. There will be some awesome rewards for graduating from our Youth Excel Program!
