ELEVATE Youth Ministry

Welcome to Elevate Youth Church!

We believe that God can and will use teenagers and young people to change and influence our world. Our mission at Elevate is to raise the next generation of leaders and influencers.

So, here are a few questions that you might have that we can answer here…

What is Elevate Youth Church?

Elevate Youth Church is a ministry designed specifically to grow and equip teenagers between the ages of 13-18 and the grades 7th-12th. Elevate Youth is at Journey Church live and in person on Wednesdays from 6:30-8pm.

Our mission at Elevate Youth is to create a safe, fun environment where teenagers can fellowship with each other. We have an amazing group of trained volunteer leaders who are passionate about youth ministry.

The safety of the students as well as our staff is very important to us. During this season, we will be taking extra measures in light of the COVID-19 guidelines. We will be treating an Elevate service exactly like a Journey service. So, the same rules that apply to Journey will apply to Elevate. They are listed below.

We will require all students and leaders to wear a mask or face covering as they walk to and from their seats. Once they are in their seat and are socially distant from other students other than family they may remove their mask if they choose to according to the guidance we’ve received from the Clay County public health department.

At this time, there won’t be the typical hang out time with games before and after like we did before to limit the amount of interaction between students.

We will time the service so that we can tell the parents an accurate time on when to pick up their teens. This will ensure that teenagers won’t have to wait in their seats too long before their ride arrives.

What is an Elevate Tribe?

Elevate Tribes are small groups of teenagers ran by our Adult Leaders. The purpose of the Elevate Tribes is to create a space outside of the regular Wednesday night service where teenagers can go deeper in their relationship with other teenagers and with God. The Tribes are split by gender for the purpose of creating deeper and more open discussions.

We believe that joining an Elevate Tribe is essential to being a part of the Elevate Youth experience. It gives teenagers a huge opportunity to grow, discuss important topics, pray, and worship with other believers and adult leaders.

Elevate Tribes are meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month. The Tribes are led by our Adult Leaders inside of homes. You can join an Elevate Tribe by emailing youth@journeykc.com.

Once again, we want to let you know that we are praying for all of you! God is still on the move and revival is in the air. If you want to stay connected, you can follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube using the links below.
