Ardmore Youth Ministry


Celebrate, Serve, and Love

Ardmore’s youth ministry is about connection. We desire to build relationships among students, adults, and parents and most importantly a relationship with Jesus Christ. We want to care for each student and family because we believe that when connections are fostered, lives change.

Fellowship, Small Groups, and Bible Studies


On the 3rd and 4th Wednesday nights 5pm-7pm.  Unplug is a time for students and adult leaders to take a minute to relax, rest, and rejuvenate from the week. This time allows everyone the chance to hang out, play games, do homework, eat dinner, and unplug from the week.

Wednesday Night Missions

Missions is an important part of the youth ministry. We desire for students to grow through service to others. On the 1st and 2nd Wednesday evenings of the month, 5pm-7pm, students engage in investing in the lives of others.

Breakfast Small Groups

On Friday mornings, our high school students can touch base with each other and their youth leaders and participate in a short devotion before going to school.

 6th Grade Gap Year

Sixth grade can be a tough year as our students start middle school and age out of the children’s ministry. The Gap Year Journey is a unique opportunity to introduce students to the youth ministry while celebrating their time in the children’s ministry. This small groups meets monthly 4:30pm-6pm.

Small Groups

Food. Conversation. Community. Hosted by the small group leaders each month, Small Groups are a safe place for students to gather and share opinions, cook together, share a meal, and meet each other in the midst of real life.

Pathways Faith Formation

Pathways is made up of three elements: Scripture, Experiences, and Topics.

We believe that scripture is foundational for the journey of a Christian and is a way that God speaks.

We believe that experiences like missions and discipleship opportunities help students put their faith into action and inform the development of their faith.

Rather than avoiding the tough questions, we want to promote healthy, scripture-led discussion. We can’t guarantee answers, but we promise to struggle together with open hearts and minds.
