High School Students and Parents,
Our High School Youth Ministry exists to help students know Jesus Christ and grow in their faith and walk with Him. In word and deed, each of our adult leaders join you in this labor of love, training up the next generation of godly young men and women.
We are eager and confidently hopeful that this will be a fruitful ministry season so long as we continue to keep our eyes on the Lord! Psalm 16:8, "I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken."
This year's Journey "Advocates" material is a solid apologetics series, equipping you to give an answer for the hope of the gospel that is in you.
We've got a hybrid program this year. High School age students will all be together from 8pm - 8:45pm for Lesson Time and Discussion. See schedule at the bottom of this page for the Wednesday night flow and start times.
- Awana Student Leaders: High School age youth serve as student leaders in the younger clubs: Cubbies, Sparks, T&T Boys and Girls.
- ASL's are required to participate in the 9/6 Awana Leader meeting at NCC, 7pm, along with all other NCC Awana leaders.
- Journey C-Track: High School age youth desiring to continue on with their Awana training will opt-in for this to stay on track to earn their Citation Award upon graduation from High School.

What is needed for a mentor to sign off a section for their Journey C-Track Student?
- Students must complete the intro activity at the beginning of each lesson.
- Students must memorize the Core Verse(s)
- Two helps max per Core Verse(s). For these purposes, a help is defined as anything more than the student would receive from reciting the verse to their pet lizard.
- Students must respond to two exploration questions in their book
- Days 1-6 of that week in the Student Bible Study book must be completed
This year for Jr. High and High School Students we are doing Trek C-Track and Journey C-Track. Basically, the main difference from years past is that students can be accountable to approved mentor(s) from their home church for verse check-off and Bible book summaries. Mentors must be approved by Pastor Vincent and/or Amy Giles for High School students, Marie Ung for Jr. High students
Expectations:Meet weekly (or so) with the student to check in and see how she is doing. The main goal is discipleship. Awana material is the tool through which this discipleship relationship can be fostered. As the Awana commander, Vincent should be able to call the adult mentor and ask how the student is doing and get a pretty accurate idea of where they are in their walk with the Lord. The Awana material is simply a means, and a good one, to help develop that mentor relationship and to provide accountability. For the student, it helps them stay on task as they diligently work towards their Citation Award, if that's a goal for them.
