As a church, we believe in the next generation! River Valley YTH is a movement of middle school and high school students who are passionate about Jesus and living out authentic, life-changing relationships in Him.

We meet every week, on Wednesdays, from 6:30-8:30 pm across multiple campuses.

If you have questions about our youth program you can email River Valley YTH or reach out to the Campus YTH Pastor/Directors listed at the bottom of this page.

Fine Arts Festival is a discipleship tool designed to help students discover, develop, and deploy their ministry gifts and to learn about their God-given abilities and talents.

We, along with leaders and family members, encourage students to develop their gifts and then use them in their schools, churches, and communities. Fine Arts Festival enables students to experience a time of learning through evaluations, workshops, and interaction with other students.

Students may enter as many as 80+ categories offered in 7 main divisions: Art, Communication, Dance, Drama, Instrumental, Vocal, and Writing. Fine Arts has the potential to be much more than “just a festival.” We desire to stand together with students as they open the doors to their futures.

If your student is interested in Fine Arts Festival, they can fill out the interest form below and one of our coaches will be in contact with them.
