DNow (AKA DiscipleNow)
DNow is our annual in-town retreat that we have for our youth to learn about a specific topic, serve their city, and have fun together. This year we are learning about our identity in Christ, how to live based on that, and how to defend it when it’s challenged. Cost is $30/student.
The vision of Redeemer’s Youth Ministry is firmly situated within the broader vision of Redeemer Church, which we summarize with three keywords: Renew, Relate, and Restore. We trust God to renew our hearts and lives. We gather together, relating to one another through fellowship and worship with our brothers and sisters. We go into a broken world to accomplish the work of God’s kingdom, which will restore it.
We believe that the primary channel of spiritual development for students is the family. Thus, the greatest opportunity for our students to grow spiritually is to attend one of our many Regroups with their family.
In addition, our Youth Group offers students to gather together for a more age-focused time of fellowship and worship.
Service & Outreach Events
Our youth ministry offers two special events for our students each month: a service event and an outreach event. We will gather for a community service opportunity on one of our Wednesday night Youth Regroup meetings each month. In addition, we will gather for an outreach event in addition to our Wednesday night meetings.
Our students are encouraged to meet in small groups with other students of the same gender and approximate age. These groups, which we are calling D-Groups, offer opportunities for our trained, background-checked youth leaders to help our students foster a deeper understanding of their relationship with God as it affects their everday life. This is comparable to Redeemer’s Gospel Coaching discipleship.
