Youth Ministry

Who Are We?

The Gloria Dei Youth Group is composed of youth in grades 7-12. We are passionate about engaging in personal relationships with our youth, not limiting church to solely a Sunday event.


Youth Ministry events are fun and welcoming! We are eager to build meaningful, faith filled friendships that serve as sources of hope, joy, and belonging throughout their high school years. These friendships are formed over shared meals, service projects, and casual Friday night hangouts of group movie nights, game nights and pizza parties!


Come join us! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the most up-to-date info on what’s happening with the Youth Group!!

Affirmation Classes

Affirmation classes are offered to youth grades 7-8. We have worked hard to provide a program that is both stimulating and educational for our youth to grow in their faith and build their relationship with God. Please reach out to Chris with any questions regarding registration and schedule.


Service Projects

GDC Youth host several service projects throughout the year! New project ideas are always welcome and encouraged. If you have any suggestions for a service project for the youth group, please email with the details. We are happy and eager to serve our community whenever possible!

Mission Trip

GDC Youth believe in serving God by serving others. Once a year, youth and adult leaders participate in a week-long mission trip organized by Group Mission Trips. These workcamps are designed to deepen your relationship with God while serving people in God’s name. Through service, devotions, and sacrifices participants have a life changing faith based experience.


The Youth Group would not be able to have these experiences without the generous community of Gloria Dei. Throughout the year, the youth host several fundraising events in an effort to help defer the costs of attending the mission trip. These include but are not limited to the Pancake Breakfast, Flea Market, and the Envelope Campaign.


If you or someone you know is interested in participating in the upcoming Mission Trip or helping with the fundraising efforts, please email for information
