Midlands Youth for christ

Grade 7 - 12

Be part of the revolution of young Christians who are changing the world

Age Appropriateness

For many youth, they know about Jesus, but they don’t know Jesus. Students in 7th-12th grade face a variety of issues and we teach them how to apply God’s Word and promises in everyday situations as they grow to know Him more. Our hope is that youth learn to rely on God and not their friends, insecurities or mistakes. All our messages are created based on the physical, mental and emotional needs of each youth.


We believe that safety is vital as families entrust us with their teens each week. Therefore, every volunteer is screened with an interview and federal background check, and every hallway is monitored with security personnel and cameras.

Pretty Awesome!

We know what’s cool and what’s NOT! Your teens will want to come to church, and won’t want to leave. From the latest video game consoles in the game room to the small groups in our services, your young person will have many opportunities to meet new people and make new friends in an environment where they are cared for and encouraged.

Questions you may have

At MY4C, our desire is to work with you to prepare and develop your youth for life. That is exactly what our staff, leaders and volunteers are called to do.

At first glance, many people get the impression that the Bible is a series of disconnected stories making random points about life. But the truth is that the Bible is a bunch of stories all leading up to the life of one person, Jesus Christ. Every story in the Old Testament is about people whose lives reflect the life that Jesus would one day live in perfection. As you read the Old Testament, ask yourself “How does this person’s life resemble the life that Jesus lived?” The New Testament is about the life that Jesus lived and sacrificed for us. It also shows us how those who were closest to Him were transformed and consequently transformed their world. As you read through the Scriptures, ask yourself “How can my life look more like the life of Jesus?”

What’s the point of my child going to a separate service? The Bible is the Bible, church is church right? The reality is that it’s a little more complicated than that. You see, being a young adult is different to being an adult. Being a young adult brings it’s own challenges, its own problems and a unique mindset. Surely, as adults, we no longer think as we did when we were younger. Because of that, information is received and learned differently during our youth years than in our adult years.

Studies have shown us common characteristics among the world’s most successful people. Two of those common characteristics were the ability to socially interact and the ability to overcome adversity. Your teen may not want to attend youth by themselves because they feel “awkward.” But overcoming awkward social settings is a part of life and a great way to train for success. So I encourage you to push your child beyond their comfort zone into a setting where they can learn in a manner they understand.
