theUNDERGROUND Values

Vibrant and growing community of youth 

We desire to cultivate a community of youth that is full of life, exciting, passionate and spiritually engaged.  We want to be growing both spiritually and in numbers as we spread the irreligious message of Jesus with others.

Developing kingdom leaders
We believe youth have the ability to be incredible leaders for Jesus in their community.  We want to be a community that is bent on both calling and developing leaders.

Relevant and practical Jesus-centered teaching
We value teaching youth practically what it means to follow Jesus in their everyday lives.  We want youth to hear, see and experience Jesus as revealed in scripture.

Passionately invested adult mentors
We believe one of the most significant pieces to seeing youth discipled is about having spiritually healthy adults walk along side them in their everyday life.  We want to see every youth being deeply invested in by a caring adult mentor.

Resourced and spiritually engaged parents
We believe that parents are the primary spiritual influencers in the lives of youth.  We want to communicate with, resource and engage parents in the life of the youth ministry.

Compassionate living
We believe that to be a follower of Jesus is to be a person of compassion.  We want to teach and lead our youth to be people who live lives of compassion.  We learn to do this both as a community and individually.

Safe Environment

We value offering a safe and secure environment for kids to learn in and to grow. We will develop this through our established Plan to Protect procedures as well as training in best practices.
