Revolution Youth Ministry exists to expose teenagers to God’s love by engaging the world, embracing fellowship, and encouraging service.

RYM is for all students from 6th to 12th grade. We believe the best way to effectively minister to each teenager is through small groups. Every student is placed in a small group based on age and gender. This is meant to be a safe place for students to grow together, ask difficult questions, and have fun.

We believe that what happens at home is more important than what happens at church. We want to partner with parents in order to make a greater impact in the lives of teenagers. For every series we do on Wednesday nights there is also a parent cue card of the lesson on our Parent page. This is an opportunity for parents to know what we are discussing at RYM and continue the discussion at home.

Every Wednesday night there is an exciting service geared just for students from 6th - 12th grade.  Students are invited to arrive by 6:30pm for a time of fellowship and games.  The service will start by 7pm with a time of worship and Biblical teaching.  Students will then head into a small group based on age and gender from 8-8:30pm.


Every Sunday during our 9am service we offer an opportunity for our Middle School & High School students to grow together through Sunday morning small groups. 6-12 grade students all join together for announcements, a game & worship, and then break into small groups after that.  The middle school guys & girls each split into separate small groups in the Fellowship Hall, and the high school students are in Room 124.

We are all studying through the Pauline epistles, and are currently in the book of Ephesians. 


Our goal at RYM is to partner with parents in order to make a greater difference in the life of your teenager.  Here are a few resources that can help us accomplish this goal.

Every message series we do on Wednesdays nights also has a parent cue card to go along with it.  This is a great way for you as a parent to have a point of conversation with your teenager about what we are learning each week.

You can also listen to the weekly youth sermon podcast below.


At Crossroads, we strongly believe in the importance of our students considering attending a Christian College or University.  There are many wonderful Nazarene and Christian institutions that provide quality education while fostering a strong spiritual and Godly environment for students.  We believe that the college years are formative years in the life of a young adult, and being surrounded by a community of Christians helps these students to remain faithful to their core Christian beliefs and reaffirms their calling to be Christ to the world.  Below you can find some links to Christian Colleges and Universities.  We encourage parents to research some of these institutions and schedule college visits for their High School students.  Our youth ministry will be scheduling various trips throughout the year.  Please be sure to contact Pastor Jesse for more information.
