Sanctuary Youth’s purpose is to glorify God by equipping our students to follow Christ and proclaim the Gospel, all the while being transformed by its power to live and love like Jesus among their peers and in the world.

Our goal is to create an environment for our students where they feel safe, loved, and respected, but are also held accountable and taught truth. We believe that prayer, worship, and the studying of God’s Word are key to navigating the uncharted territory traveled between 6th and 12th grades, and in helping students find their identity in Christ alone. We know that once these disciplines become real and personal to students, God will help them make wise choices in their relationships, set healthy boundaries, and solidify their beliefs, all in order to reflect His love to the world.  Join us as we grow deeper in our understanding of who God is and have a lot of fun doing so!
