Growing Youth in Faith

Welcome to Growing Youth in Faith at MPC

MPC Youth ministry is focused on developing inspired and engaged youth. Preparing youth for a faithful life filled with great hope and a vision for their future. This includes inspiring, developing, and growing a faith-based community of youth within MPC. Youth Ministry recognizes and encourages the individual talents of every youth and prepares them for life’s challenges through faith-based approaches. Our program nurtures a compassion for, and an acceptance of, one another and provides a safe community for youth to be themselves and feel accepted among peers and mentors.
