We strive to see students of every age discover who they are in Jesus Christ and become the world- changers they were created to be. This discovery will lead them to walk in the God-given power of the Holy Spirit and will allow them to radically change their culture.

We desire to reach and inspire our students with dynamic outreach, powerful events and relevant discipleship.

We believe that students, more than any other age group, need to be devoted to a real God that can relate to them in a real world.

Wednesday Nights

Youth meets Wednesdays nights for a time of deep worship, dynamic messages, and powerful events. We believe that students, more than any other age group, need to connect with a real God who can relate to them in a real world. For specific campus times and locations, check out our Events page.

Everyone Nights

Attention all River Valley YTH students! Everyone Nights is back and better than ever! It’s time for all eight of our campuses to gather together for one night to worship as the River Valley YTH fam.
