Here at Village Church we LOVE our students! And we LOVE helping our students encounter Jesus in a personal way and begin the life-long adventure of following Jesus! Our Student Ministries is a great place for teenagers to build friendships, experience a ton of fun, and grow closer to Jesus.
Along with weekly meetings, we have exciting opportunities throughout the year like service projects, retreats, special events, and summer youth missions.

2022 Youth Mission Trips
Camp Barnabas Trip: July 9-16 or July 9-22
LeaderTreks Trip: July 17-23
Camp Barnabas is a camp in Purdy, MO for kids and adults with special needs. Our teens have the opportunity to spend a week (or 2) at Camp Barnabas helping the campers enjoy a week away from normal life.
LeaderTreks is in Dayton, OH. Refugees from Africa, Asia and Middle East have found LeaderTreks to be a source of help as they transition into American life. The students work on house repairs and run a VBS for the refugee kids.
Mission work is a vital part of our Student Ministries. As followers of Christ, God has given us the task of sharing the love of Jesus with all people, so Village Church works to encourage and challenge our students to engage in ministry and mission.
Each year the Youth Missions ministry sends out several teams across the country and around the world. This year, the application process begins in November, with training starting in February. The teams prepare over the following months culminating in their mission trip in July.
Youth Missions is an exciting, stretching, life-changing endeavor. Each year God's glory is on display through our student teams, certainly in their work efforts, but even in their own hearts and lives.
