Our Mission in Youth Ministry


To Lead All on to a Path of Christ Centered Discipleship

Students’ teenage years are an important point in their faith development. It is the time that they, alongside their parents, come to decide what they believe, why they believe it, and how they can live into those beliefs.

At Mentor UMC it is our mission to help students figure out what those beliefs are in a fun, comfortable environment where they can learn alongside their peers. Our hope is that they will form lasting friendships, become leaders in the church, and be able to take their faith beyond the walls of the church building. Developing our faith is something that takes time, support from other believers and adults in our congregation, and a space where students can ask the BIG questions. We want to make a space where they are Learning and Living the Love of Christ every day!

I truly believe that each student has gifts and talents, and each should be celebrated in the church! It is my desire that the students would take these gifts and use them for God’s glory in remarkable ways beyond our typical understanding of service. We should support our students both in and out of the church, in all aspects of their life, because God is ever present in their lives too! – Leah Nash, Director of Youth Ministry

As it says in 1 Peter 4: 8-11

8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: 11 whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
