Welcome to University Youth Ministry (UYM)! We are a group of pre-teens and teens that strive to show Jesus throughout all of our lives. We are not perfect, but we live in the blessing of God's glorious grace. Our goal is to let Jesus flow through our hearts, minds, bodies and souls. Please, come and be a part of our imperfect group trying to serve a perfect Savior.
The youth ministry leadership team desires for our Sunday morning classes and Wednesday night gatherings to be relevant, engaging and Biblical. We offer a class for grades 6-12
We also have a variety of service and fellowship activities, including annual retreats, special Bible studies, devotionals, and spontaneous, random activities. Many of these activities occur in the summer months, and our calendar (below) will help students and their parents know what's coming up.

GULF Youth Experience

This year, the theme for GULF is DREAMER. I am super excited about this year! We are going to be leaving for Orange Beach on Friday the 17th and will return to church on Monday morning the 20th. You will notice that the price has gone up this year, that is to help cover the hotel costs. We are staying the extra night so that we do not have to miss any of the Sunday evening worship. The DEADLINE to sign up is December 8th! Half of payment will be due on December 8th, the remaining balance will be due when we leave on January 18th.
