With over 25 years of experience working with youth, I have found that most teenagers are looking for a place where they find safety, acceptance, and understanding. Here at Duluth FUMC we give our teenagers a God centered place of learning, exploration, and love. Living in a world where their faith is questioned, I strive to provide youth a place where they can explore who God is and what God’s purpose is for their lives. Through this process, each youth learns and understands what is means to claim God as his or her personal Savior. They in turn ascertain what it means to be a true Disciple of Christ, a Truth that carries them into adulthood.

There is a curriculum for you to use, or you are welcome to provide a topic for discussion.
