Life for young people today has become more difficult and challenging and full of pressure. And when it comes to faith, the world has offered many reasons why not to consider the possibility and relevance of a personal God.
We believe that the Bible is absolute truth and God is not only real, but has been trying to get your attention since you came into this world, wanting you to know that He loves you and wants to rescue you, set you free and have a real, intimate relationship with you.
Here at Redeemer, our Youth Ministry strives to provide an atmosphere that is safe for students to voice their doubts and ask their questions in order to help them explore what they believe about faith, life and God.
