About Our High School Youth Program
Saint John Paul II said,
"You young people have in a special way the task of witnessing today to the faith; the commitment to bring the Gospel of Christ - the Way, the Truth and the Life - into the third Christian Millennium, to build a new civilization - a civilization of love, of justice, and of peace."
Compass seeks to grow a youth culture centered on Christ and the Gospel. We serve students from surrounding high schools by building environments that cultivate community, awaken faith, and engage young people in growth and maturity. Our youth workers are college students and recent college graduates who seek to share the freedom and joy they've found in Christ and Christian community.
Growing together with brothers and sisters in Christ is essential to Christian maturity. The Lord never intended for us to pursue the Christian life by ourselves. Community and intentional relationships are the best context for growth. Small Groups are intended to give people an opportunity to personally share and grow together rationally, intellectually, and spiritually. Small groups are not an extension of the large co-ed environment, therefore they are only as good as your participation. We ask the students to take risks, trust one another, and let the Lord do the rest.
