The Common Ground Youth Ministry exists to call youth to be formed into the image of Jesus so they can love their neighbors in Indianapolis and around the world. Our youth ministry is dedicated to an inter-generational, discipleship-driven, family-based model that celebrates and encourages the involvement of our youths’ families, parents and mentors. We believe that we are all on a journey with God, and we desire to walk alongside our youth during this season of life.
As a whole, every activity and lesson is designed to foster in youth a deeper understanding of a few grounding points:
They BELONG to God and his community. Youth are engaged in authentic relationships with others in the church body, family, friends and neighbors.
They are invited to GROW to be more like Jesus. Youth are given opportunities to encounter God by experiencing His grace and knowing His truth through solid biblical teaching, hands-on experiences, solitude and firm rooting of identity in Christ.
They can RESPOND to the Holy Spirit’s leadings to serve others. Youth are invited to discover and embrace their unique identities, purposes and missions in God's Kingdom by engaging in service.
