The Mission of New Life Youth

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.

Disciple U

Disciple U is a youth discipleship program designed to guide students through the three phases of knowing God mentally, relationally, and confidently. While it’s the most fun environment ever for a student to make their best friends and grow more in their relationship with God, it’s also a serious commitment! Each phase consists of a weekend retreat, 18 evening sessions throughout the year, some required reading, and a summer mission trip, all while enjoying the community of fellow students committed to being a disciple of Jesus. Applications due by September 19th.

Phase 1: 7th and 8th grade, Know God Mentally.
Tuesdays from 6:00-8:30p

Phase 2: 9th and 10th grade, Know God Relationally.
Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30p

Phase 3: 11th and 12th grade, Know God Confidently.
Tuesdays from 6:00-8:30p

All three phases meet at our Kempsville Campus.

Youth Nights

Youth Nights happen every Wednesday night from 6-8:30p at the Kempsville campus for middle and high school students.  

As our main service for the youth, students can expect to play a short game, have worship, hear a teaching, and then break out into small groups to dig deeper on the night’s teaching.

Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club is New Life’s unique and creative campus-specific middle chool class on Sunday mornings. It’s designed to teach and equip students to take notes, dissect, and discuss our New Life weekend services. Framed as a conversational approach to Sunday “school,” The Breakfast Club has three essential components:

  1. A relaxing environment
  2. Conversation based small groups surrounding the previous week’s message

The goal of The Breakfast Club is not to download information, but to build relationships and engage in spiritual conversations that foster spiritual growth.  

All-in Youth Summer Camp

August 7–12

Summer Camp is one of the major highlights of the year for our youth here at New Life Church. It is an incredible overnight experience where we come together for a few days and truly encounter the presence of God and build relationships with others that will last a lifetime.

We’ve got a lot of fun things in store for our students and can’t wait for the powerful times of praise, worship, and inspiring preaching that will undoubtedly change their lives. Summer Camp is a great experience that no Middle School or High School student should miss out on, and we cannot wait to party with them this year!


This year we will be taking the students to:

Watermarks Camp
1145 James River Rd,
Scottsville, VA 24590


For more information on the camp, please refer to their website:

Daily schedule is subject to Watermarks timetable and so will be given two weeks prior to the camp or once we have received the times from watermarks camp.
