Our goal is to create an environment where middle and high school students will make life-long best friends, become radical in the Christian faith, and discover how God can use them to change the world.
With New Life being a multi-site, regional church with a broad reach, we’ve created a Wednesday night youth ministry expression designed to also have an expansive reach that can go both deep and wide.
As you see listed below, we have several different services and programs that rotate depending on the Wednesday evening.
As you read through the various descriptions, you’ll see that some nights are designed for a wide, range of students in mind, and some require a greater commitment from both the teenager and their family.
Youth Group Nights are designed with the intentionality of expressing the heart of God in a multi-sensory expressive way, prioritizing a creative and dynamic service and environment designed specifically with the teenager in mind. On these nights, middle school and high school students worship together and then breakout for the teaching portion of the night in middle school and high school-specific environments.
Youth Group Nights: 6:30 – 8:30 (1st, 3rd & 5th Wednesdays)
Invite Night: 6:00 – 8:30 (4 times a year)
Parent Night: 6:30 – 8:30 (5th Wednesday)
Disciple U – A lifestyle commitment to become more like Jesus.
Disciple U is an ongoing commitment and lifestyle that a teenager within New Life Church makes to the continual development of spiritual formation and practices to become a follower of Jesus.
This lifestyle consists of weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual commitments of attendance on Wednesday nights, monthly Sunday evening teachings, quarterly retreats & mission trips, as well as different spiritual disciplines all in the context of doing life within a spiritual community.
Disciple U Phase Nights: 6:30 – 8:30 (2nd & 4th Wednesdays)
*Additional Disciple U commitments:
Disciple U Step Up / Youth Group: 6:00 – 6:30 / 6:30 – 8:30 (1st, 3rd & 5th Wednesdays)

Disciple U Quarterlies (Four events a year)
New Life’s weekend service is continually working towards what we refer to as an intergenerational church. The intergenerational church is where there is a distinct level of intentionality about bringing different generations together with a mutually influential relationship. New Life’s youth ministry expression is designed to allow students the opportunity to begin to be a part of the broad expression of New Life’s weekend services. Because of this commitment, we are continuing to create opportunities for our youth to be more and more involved in New Life weekend services as well as shape and influence our weekend services. We believe strongly that students aren’t just the church of tomorrow, but more accurately the church of today.
We have several different services and programs that rotate depending on the Weekend Service.
Breakfast Club Weekends (1st, 3rd & 5th Sundays of every month during New Life’s Weekend Services)
Youth Serve Weekends (2nd & 4th Sundays of every month during New Life’s Weekend Services)
