Our Purpose

City on a Hill Youth Ministries exist as a group of young men and women who are proud to be called Christians, who let the world know of our God, and show Him through our example.

Our Mission

To train and equip young men and women to be more like God, show Him to others, and raise up new believers.

What to Expect 

City on a Hill youth Ministries meets two times a week, Wednesday night at 7, and Sunday night at 6:30. Our Wednesday night service is an exciting time of games, fellowship, and a convicting Bible lesson. On Sunday nights we focus on diving deeper into God's word, as we are currently looking at the main men and women of the Bible and uncovering what their situations would have looked like through their eyes. Throughout the month we will have at least one event including everything from bowling to out of state trips. Everyone is welcome to join us. Become a part of the city on a Hill youth ministries today!
