Our desire is to come alongside the family to help in the spiritual formation and discipleship of our youth in order that they may truly magnify Christ. We want to train them up to become leaders within the church community and in their own circles.
— Curt Kenney, Youth & Family Pastor since 2014

Youth Missions

 

At VBCC, we desire to always be moving Up, In, and Out: UP toward God in worship and love for him, IN toward each other as we deepen our bonds as a community, and OUT toward the world as we bring the good news of the gospel to others.  This three-dimensional movement is only made possible through the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ.  Through discipleship, teaching God‘s word, and local as well as global missions, we desire to develop students with a “sticky faith“ that continues beyond high school into the rest of their lives.

In Mark 16:15 Jesus says, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” We are committed to developing young people who love Jesus and have a heart for the lost in our own neighborhoods, schools, and places of work, as well as around the globe.
