Youth Ministry


Youth Sunday 2019

 Students are not only the “future” church, but the “present” church

We are grateful for their energy, enthusiasm, and participation. Beargrass is strongly committed to providing excellent ministry to middle and high school students. In addition to a full-time, ordained youth minister, a team of devoted adult sponsors serve as mentors for our youth.
