Mission Statement: To help teens grow in faith, connect with others, and share the love of Christ with the world.
Here in the TYM, we are family. A family that strives to build community inside and outside our building walls. Our core values are: Love God, Live Jesus, and Follow the Spirit. You can expect to connect with other students and families through events and trips, designed to build and foster relationships. We believe it is through these connections that God’s redemptive work is first felt and seen. The TYM intentionally provides opportunities for service, mission work, and everyday kindness, which enable others to experience the redemption of Jesus Christ. Here in the TYM, you may enter as a stranger, but our hope is for you to leave as family.
D6 is our monthly Sunday night meeting that provides parents and teens with tools to encounter the world through a Christian lens. Topics like mental health, pornography, social media, etc.
On Sunday mornings after our meaningful worship, we head to the TYM wing for Sunday morning class. We strive to provide a space for our students to learn about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, spiritual disciplines, and many other spiritual topics in a variety of ways with various teachers. At times, we are in one big group, and other times, we are split into a variety of groups depending on the topic.
Something we consider important within the TYM is connecting our students with other generations by having adult small-group leaders. These adults provide a great avenue of relationship and mentorship. Fortify is another way we use other generations to pour into the lives of our students. Fortify happens on Wednesday nights throughout the school year.
The first Wednesday night of every month throughout the school year, we meet for a night of worship with praise, prayer, and teaching. We may bring in speakers outside our normal TYM tribe, who challenge and spiritually uplift us.
Every Sunday morning between worship and class, our TYM Café is open. You will find coffee, hot chocolate, and tea along with some fresh breakfast foods. If you are a first-time visitor, come get a free beverage and food item on Wilber.
