Email youth@journeykc.com if you have questions about Elevate.

We believe that God can and will use teenagers and young people to change and influence our culture and our world. Our mission at Elevate is to raise the next generation of leaders and influencers by empowering them to Reach Up to God, to Raise Up those around them, and to Rise Up to the unique and upward call that God has placed on them.

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

What is Elevate Youth Church?

At Elevate Youth Church, our mission is to…

REACH UP. We are called to REACH UP and pursue God with everything that we have. The Bible says that if we draw near to God, He will draw near to us. We need to REACH UP to God and pursue a life worthy of Him. Living a life reaching up to God is living a life in constant pursuit of Him.

RAISE UP. We are called to RAISE UP the people around us. Reaching the lost is a critical part of our mission as followers of Christ, and God has placed everyone where they are at to become an influence to those around them and to call them into a deeper relationship with Christ and with each other. God is focused on people; we are too.

RISE UP. We have a unique, upward calling from our Father that we need to RISE UP to. We know that God has a specific plan and purpose for every one of us. We are called to be set-apart for Him. God is looking for young men and women who are not afraid to accept the call that God has for us. He is searching for those who will take His challenge and lead a life worthy of His name.

Our goal at Elevate Youth is to create a safe, fun environment where teenagers can hangout, have fun, and grow in their walk with Christ. We have many indoor and outdoor hangout activities including video games, volleyball, basketball, and many others! We have an amazing group of trained volunteer leaders who are passionate about youth ministry.

What is an Elevate Tribe?

Elevate Tribes are small groups of teenagers run 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 at 7pm. The Tribes are led by our Adult Leaders inside of homes. You can join an Elevate Tribe by emailing youth@journeykc.com
