Youth Ministry (6th-12th Grade)
Like other Family Ministries at St. George’s Church, Youth Ministry is cooperatively led by parents and the associate rector. Parents, youth, and the Rev. Dr. Cal Lane gather on a regular basis to share leadership, plan events, and form a close-knit community of disciples who are responsible to each other.
The philosophy of Family Ministry is that parents are the chief disciple-makers of their children and our ministries seek to empower, encourage, and equip parents in their mission and ministry to and with their youth.
