Welcome to VBC Youth!
Our main focus is creating intergenerational relationships that will help students know Christ and follow Him as they move from being teens into adulthood.
Using the book Sticky Faith by Drs. Kara Powell and Chap Clark, we want to train students to have the kind of faith that stays with them when they leave home for college and beyond.
What we do
VBC Youth Midweek - Every Tuesday during the school year from 6:30pm-9:00pm, we gather together for encouragement, friendship, laughter, food, music, and entertainment. Middle school and high school go to different rooms for teaching and then break into small groups based on grade and gender.
VBC Youth Sunday - During first service only (9:00am): Meet in the Worship Center Auditorium to participate in worship with the main congregation, then break before the sermon and go to the 3rd floor for teaching time.
Fall Kick Off, Winter Camp, Summer Camp, The Slam (end-of-year event), Game Nights, and Small Group Outings throughout the year.
