Youth Pastor

Arctic Fire Youth ministry is focused entirely on young people between the ages of 12-18. The Vision for this ministry is that of our church’s:

“Our vision is to bring the uncommitted into a devoted life of service to God; by leading them into the New Birth Experience and to an active involvement in a ministry of the kingdom.”

The Sanctuary UPC Vision

It is our sincere desire to create a place where young people can feel safe to come and find rest as well as know they are loved. We desire to lead every young person into the New Birth Experience and help them develop and grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We try to accomplish this by creating opportunities to build relationships with other young people, through teaching in Friday night youth classes. We gather together for food and weekly Bible studies every Wednesday. We also have monthly youth events where young people can come and have fun, and so many more adventures. We believe God has a divine calling for every young person. We desire for every young person to develop their walk with God and answer the divine call The Lord has placed on their life.

“ Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

1st Timothy 4:12
