CYF Mission Statement

Children, Youth and Family Ministries at St John’s helps students to Like, Follow, Share:


Like God’s word.

CYF work is about connecting students to God, that they might know God better. As we help students learn to worship, teach them how to read the Bible and pray, we’re modeling a life of faith and helping them identify God as the solid rock on which their life is built.


Follow Jesus.

Part of what it means to be a follower of Jesus is to be part of the Christian community. We, as the family of God, learn together, play together, serve together, and grow together. In short, we share our lives with each other in Christ.


Share the Holy Spirit.

All of us have God-given talents and abilities. As students grow older, they will discover how their greatest passions meet the world’s greatest needs. In CYF ministries, we will help students develop a heart for serving in the world as an expression of their faith.
