Our Vision

The kingdom comes in relationships.


At Youth Ministry: Small Church, we believe Jesus is revealed in community. There is an often-overlooked power to ministry in smaller groups. While we struggle against limited budgets, we have the ability to connect young people to their faith in ways larger churches envy.

Churches with attendance under around 200 people on a Sunday morning simply function differently than larger, program-driven churches. There are advantages to that, of course, but there is also strength in smaller communities.

Youth Ministry: Small Church exists to support youth workers in this different way of doing youth ministry. Some things are consistent across different church sizes, because adolescence is (sort of) consistent.


Other things are different, because our churches are different. Our relationships are different. Our systems are different.
