Youth and Middle School Ministry

     Our "Light in the Dark Youth Ministry" is a Youth Group designed for teens in grades 9-12 and is a vibrant and vital part of the ministry at Ocoee Church of God. This group is led by Youth Pastors Zach and Cheyenne Miller and they are assisted by the Associate Youth Pastors Ryan and Dee Dempsey. These young people are the future of our church and we work hard to train them to be prepared for when "their day" comes. The group meets several times each month for activities, bible studies, and youth services. Some of these activities include mission's trips, Winterfest, scavenger hunts, lock-ins, and much more. The purpose of the youth group is to have good Christian fellowship, to evangelize to the lost, to build up their peers, and to disciple the youth.


 Goals for the Youth Ministry:


 Spiritual Growth

*Salvation- To show from their testimony that every teen

   has received Christ as their personal Savior. Romans 10:9,10


*Evangelization- Train each young person to share the Gospel

   and allow opportunities to lead someone to Christ.


*Service Oriented- To present opportunities for service oriented

   activities such as: team outreach, mission trips, nursing homes,

   Bible studies, church cleaning/workday children's ministries, etc.


*Devoted Teens- To encourage each teen to develop a more

   intimate knowledge of God. 2 Peter 3:18

   up after oneself.
