Nèos Youth Ministries is comprised of over a hundred 6th-12th graders and 30 adult leaders who are growing, wrestling, and searching for God. 

At our core, we aim to give our students the tools necessary to live a clean, holy life in a dirty world.  We see this best being practiced by living into our church’s Vision Statement—to Extend God’s love, Teach Biblical Truth, and Share our Lives together!

If you have any questions please email Student Pastor Andrew Arp at [email protected] or Student Pastor Associate Shane Tarter at [email protected].

Middle School

6th - 8th Grades

High School

9th - 12th Grades

Sunday School

10:15am - 11:15am

Following our first service at 9am on Sunday morning, students gather in the Neos Big Room located in the Jubilee building.

This time begins with fellowship and announcements before the students are released to individual classes. Each class has the opportunity to have a time of discussion about the sermon as well as lesson from their respective teachers that is based on the morning sermon and is focused on Biblical truths and discipleship.

This is a great time to ask questions and dig deeper in their faith with their Sunday School teachers and other students their age. We have two classes for Middle School students: 6th-8th Grade Guys and 6th-8th Grade Ladies. Class sizes average between 10-15 students.

Sunday School ends around 11:15am. Students who did not attend our first service are then encouraged to attend our second service at 11:15 – The Branch.

Wednesday Night

6:00pm - 7:00pm

Starting at 4:30 when our gym doors open, students begin to gather and fellowship together. From 6:00 until 7:15 our students participate in games, small groups, and a teaching time.

Games and small groups are both centered around the lesson being taught that night. Game time includes both physical and mental games. For small groups, students are split up by gender with an adult who helps leads a time of discussion. At 7:15 students transition into the Neos Big Room for worship time that includes Middle and High School, as well as our college students and young adults. It is our desire that this time fosters relationships that span generations.

The focus of Wednesday nights is to be an entry point into the youth group and the church as whole, but also a place where students can group deeper in their relationships with Christ and others. To receive a weekly email, describing in detail our emphasis for each Wednesday night, please email our Youth Ministries Administrative Assistant, Darolyn Praskach at [email protected]

Nazarene Safe

We believe that prevention is the best protection and we focus our energies on intentionally addressing this need. All teens are led by leaders and volunteer staff who are trained in our safety policies and procedures. Everyone working with teens submits to a criminal background check. All teen leaders work in teams, never alone. We are committed to protecting the most vulnerable among us. NazareneSafe includes a five step safety system:
  1. Awareness Raising
  2. Staff and Volunteer Screening
  3. Policies, Procedures, and Practices
  4. Accountability: Monitoring and Oversight
  5. Reporting and Responding
