ACP Youth

Youth ages 11-18

Sundays 12.30-13h45 in the ACP Catacombs.

The youth ministry at ACP exists to love God and others through the grace of Christ.

ACP Youth is an active community made up of students 11-18 years old from many nationalities, traditions, and backgrounds. We strive to be a community that promotes and values being:

  • Relational — We value real, honest, and sincere relationships: with God and one another.
  • Hospitable — Regardless of who you are, where you come from, where you are going, or how long you are staying, we hope you feel at home here.
  • Missional — We believe that God intends Christians to be a blessing to the world.
  • Christian — We are a Christ-centered community seeking to learn and grow each day to know and follow Jesus.
