High School Youth Group
Our High School ministry continues to evolve and grow, along with our kids. So many of our kids have grown up through the Tesoro program and the High School program's goal and mission is to disciple them in a way that that will encourage them in their walk with Jesus as they navigate through those challenging high school years.
We meet every Friday night and have a time of worship, teaching, snacks and games. After every teaching we break up into small groups where we can go deeper into the teaching and application and pray with the kids for their difficulties and problems.
Once a month we add a special fun night where the kids can invite their friends and use this as an opportunity to reach out into their schools. We also look for other resources and activities for our kids to attend that support and reinforce the discipleship aspect of our Tesoro Club mission. We have wild and crazy game nights along with some special "outings". The kids have attended the Thrive Conference worship service; a Purity Conference at Murrieta Conference Center; enjoyed an outing to watch the movie I Can Only Imagine; joined with other Coachella Valley youth for a rally highlighting the different ministry opportunities available to them.
During the summer when the kids are out of school we add extra activities during the week such as hikes and movie nights and community serving opportunities before the summer camp season begins.
Because we know that discipleship does not just end after high school, we also help them map out what post high school looks like. We make graduation a special event and support them in considering options such as attending college, the military, Bible School, and/or vocational training. We put on a special Seniors Graduation Evening with a catered dinner, gift bags and a message from God's Word targeted for life "after high school."
Our desire is to raise up a generation of leaders from the Coachella Valley that will continue the work of Tesoro Club far beyond the present time. Thus, we are currently praying for God to raise up servants who would take this age group of post high school students and continue a discipleship program with them.
