Elevate Youth

Explore faith and friendship with our growing youth group! We welcome 6th-12th graders from the church and our community as we meet weekly throughout the school year for small group mentorship, dynamic large group sessions, and tackling relevant issues. Your child will discover Jesus, exploring how their faith applies to their real-world experiences. 

Middle School Meet-Up

On Sundays, during the second service, middle schoolers (6-8th gr.) have the opportunity to connect with leaders and peers for fun, faith-building activities created with them in mind.  

Meet Krizia 

Krizia is the Youth Director at GCC, and she knows the feeling of stepping into an unfamiliar place for the first time. She is there to help. Step into Elevate Youth with ease, as approachable leaders answer any questions you may have. Exciting games and icebreakers pave the way for an inspiring message, which leads to grade-specific, small-group discussions that foster authentic connections. And, of course, there is always food!

You can find a place to belong

Being a student in today's world can be challenging. The pressures of a culture that often contradicts the Bible and God's ways can lead to feelings of hopelessness and anxiety. Elevate youth is where the pressures of school, friends, and social media begin to fade away. 


Youth Nights by Design

Elevate Youth is designed to create a welcoming environment where everyone can be themselves and find positive, meaningful friendships. Our youth leaders are trained to mentor students to see their identity in Christ Jesus. They find hope and freedom by experiencing the love of the Father and growing in His ways, as outlined in the Bible.

Our Youth Leaders

At Elevate Youth, leaders have been trained and vetted to ensure your students are safe and can experience a fun environment as their faith and friendships grow.  Our youth leaders become mentors walking with your child during an important and stressful season of life.
