Youth Page Header 2019


Countryside's Youth Ministry partners with parents to evangelize and equip the next generation. We exhort every teen to glorify Christ, submit to the authority of God's Word, use their spiritual gifts in the ministry of the gospel, and to have a passion for the lost. We strive to prepare young people to be the leaders of the next generation.

Our regular Sunday and Wednesday gatherings are suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Focusing on the Essentials

During this unprecedented time, there are many uncertainties that we are facing every day. As Christians, we can be certain that God is in control, and that He wants us to continue to fulfill the chief end of man: To Glorify God & to Enjoy Him Forever.
