Our student ministry for 6th through 12th graders meets every Wednesday night at 7 pm in the Fellowship Hall and is commonly referred to as ROAR. This youth group is passionate about living like Jesus and sharing His love. The Wednesday night gathering is anchored by relevant and engaging Bible teaching, dynamic and student-driven worship, and always a good mix of fun and games.
ROAR is a bustling youth ministry all year round. There are discipleship groups, missions trips, summer camps, evangelistic teams, and seasonal parties and outreaches throughout the year.
Jon & Sara Vanderpool
Harvest Youth is led by Jon and Sara Vanderpool. The Vanderpools oversee all the events, groups, volunteers, and teams that relate to youth ministry. With four daughters of their own, Jon and Sara are passionate about seeing teenagers hit the mark for Christ and become all that God has called them to be. They have created a culture of student-leadership, integrity, devotion, and joy that have become hallmark qualities of ROAR, and are committed to raising up a generation of fearless and faithful teens who will reach the world around them with the power of the Gospel.
