"Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity."

-1 Timothy 4:12

Youth Ministries at EPCBC

Youth ministries has been a long-time passion for us. In some form or another, we've had programs for our community's youth for the last 50 years. As we've grown as a church and a town, we realized the need to grow this program even further. In early 2020, Norm Welch was hired to be our full-time youth pastor!

Since then, it's been nothing but amazing. Keep scrolling to see what kinds of programs we have for middle and high school students!
