What We Do

Youth Connect is not a traditional youth ministry. Coming out of COVID Lockdown 2020, we strategically reimagined the structure of Carey Youth, Forrestdale. Moving away from a typical program-based model of youth ministry, Youth Connect is a resource-effective relationship-based model of discipleship.

Equipping our youth to be and make disciples of Jesus is the heartbeat of everything we do. Every week, we speak about what it looks like for our youth to follow Jesus throughout their week. We focus on building up our understanding of who Christ is, and explore various spiritual practices to help us engage with Him on a personal level.

Over one year into the birth of Youth Connect, we are praising God for what He has created through this ministry. Not only have we quadrupled in size, but we have seen the exciting spiritual transformation in the youth that come. We are seeing our teenagers engage with God personally, and invite their friends along because they are finding out that Jesus is simply too good to keep to ourselves.
