Training our teens to love God, each other, and the world. (7th-12th grade)

Weekly Gatherings


Tuesday Nights we meet in the Youth Center at 6:30PM! (NOTE: starting Nov 14th this will be changed to Sunday Nights at 6:30PM) We begin with a fun game or a mixer, then we head into a student-led worship time, followed by a sermon from our youth pastor Zach Nelson or another church leader. We seek to bring students into an environment where they are led into God's presence. We close our messages with a time of conversation in small groups led by qualified, adult youth staff.

Wednesday Nights we meet for Girl's and Guy's Group in the Youth Center at 6:30PM! This is for students to grow deeply in relationship with each other and with God. Guys and Girls separate into smaller groups to study scripture, to encourage/pray for one another, and to help each other pursue a life in Christ.

Sunday Mornings we meet at 9AM in the Youth Center! On Sundays we get together and do what we call Pancakes and Prayer! Just like it sounds, we hang out and eat pancakes and also spend some time in prayer! After that we head into main service at 9:45AM!

Youth Ministry at Visalia Naz

Being young is challenging. Sure, most students aren't paying bills yet, but it's in junior high and high school that people really begin to deeply ponder issues of purpose and meaning, seeking answers to doubts and questions about God, life, friends, sex, and more. These are not easy questions to answer, and the burden of growing and learning as a youth can be heavy.

Visalia Naz is a place that takes young people seriously. Is youth group fun here? Absolutely! Games, camps, sports (ever heard of gorilla ball? yeah, you're missing out, come try it) abound. But we don't stop at fun. True and lasting joy comes only from loving and obeying God (Psalm 16:11), and the mission of our church - love God, live as a family, and go make disciples - extends to our youth group. It's by pursuing God through this mission that our students discover the hope and joy that satisfies even the deepest and most difficult questions they may have.

We hope that you'll feel confident in visiting our Visalia Naz youth group, or sending your child to visit. We would love to meet you! See our location here.
