Youth & Children's Ministries

Our youth experience God through Bible learning and engaging worship

The Youth and Children’s Ministries of Life Church at South Mountain exist to develop the next generation by encouraging them to grow spiritually and by preparing them to share the Gospel of Christ with others.


Our youth are vital members of the church. They are not only the next generation, they are part of our faith community now.

At Life Church we are passionate about creating an environment where our young people can engage with one another and invite the Holy Spirit to move in their hearts and minds.

It is our goal for creative leaders to teach the Bible and lead worship, inspiring our youth to love Jesus wholeheartedly and carry His light into their world.
