GET INVOLVED…..Our Unleashed Youth Ministry serves those in Middle School & High School and offers opportunities  for our Youth to model Jesus in their acceptance, forgiveness, & service.  The Youth in this group desire to be together in an atmosphere of fun & fellowship where God’s unconditional love is evident.

The Mission statement for our Unleashed ministry is to be a group of young people who are inspiring each other, regardless of age, to always be on their guard, to stand firmly in faith, to be men and women of courage and strength, and to do everything in love.

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”

Unleashed Sunday Nights and Weekly Bible study

The Genesis Youth meet together on Sunday evenings during the school year at 5:00 pm for Unleashed.  In addition, each week the Youth break into groups at 10:10 am for Sunday Morning Classes for Bible study.  There are also opportunities offered throughout the year to gather in small groups for a time of fellowship, mission work and Bible discussion.

Youth Retreats and Trips

Every year we schedule a High school retreat weekend, a Middle school overnight retreat and a trip to Pilgrimage (see below).

These are great opportunities to learn more about each other, have fun and develop our relationship with Jesus!




Each fall the youth group attends the Pilgrimage event in Fayetteville, NC, an event hosted by the North Carolina Conference.

Pilgrimage 2017 will be held on the weekend of November 10-12, 2017

Check out the NCC Pilgrimage Website for information on how you can participate in the houseband, choir, or other opportunities to share.  The cost is $135 for the weekend, and includes lodging and transportation.  Registration is closed for this year’s trip but check back next fall for Pilgrimage 2018!
