All middle school and high school students are invited to join us weekly as we hang out, play games, gather together in small groups, worship together and learn from relevant gospel messages.

Throughout the year we host amazing connecting nights, such as: Small Group fun nights, 'The Gathering' worship nights, our annual Christmas Banquet, amazing retreats, and incredible service projects like Camp Bob and Backpacks of Hope.

The last Wednesday of the month is an All-Youth Worship Night called "The Gathering."  Youth from all campuses in grades 6-12 are invited to come to our Chilliwack Campus for a great evening of worship, fun, snacks and a guest speaker.

"Central Youth Ministry exists to lead students to be authentic followers of Jesus, by loving God and loving people"

As a Youth Ministry we want to help young people live their lives for God in the midst of a lost and broken world. We do this by pointing them to Jesus Christ who is the hope and light in the midst of despair. Our goal is that each student who walks through the door will encounter in some form, the one true and living God, and that he or she will enter a personal relationship with Him. Everything we do should portray our love for God and the students we work with


  1. Creating a safe environment where anyone, regardless of background, age, or race feels welcomed, accepted, encouraged and loved.
  2. Providing regular expose to the truth about the gospel and Jesus Christ by communicating it culturally and relevantly, without watering it down in small groups and Large group settings.
  3. Supporting students to grow in their faith in Jesus by helping them generate a love for the living word of God, prayer, worship, evangelism, fellowship and service.
  4. Providing opportunities for every student and leader to express their love for God and for people through service opportunities and missions that impact our community, country and world.
  5. Providing caring leaders who can speak truth into students’ lives as they themselves model the Christian life.
  6. Praying for students on a daily basis
  7. Being intentional about reaching the lost.
