What is James River Youth?

James River Youth is about reaching the lost, creating a life-giving and fun atmosphere, and building community through Life Groups. We offer services and programs designed specifically for our youth students. If you are a junior high or high school aged student, then James River Youth is right for you!

6th-8th Grade

Junior high students will have a blast in the 6.8 ministry designed just for them. 6.8 shows students what it means to have a passionate, intentional faith in Jesus Christ. At 6.8, students get to experience hilarious games, high-energy worship, and messages they can relate to. 6th-8th graders will not want to miss out on all the amazing things planned for them at James River Youth!

9th-12th Grade

The James River Youth 9.12 ministry is tailored specifically for 9th-12th graders. The 9.12 ministry is committed to equipping students with everything they need to be a significant influence for Jesus. While in 9.12, senior high students will experience passionate worship, relevant teachings, and make lasting friendships with other students. At James River Youth, high school students have an incredible place for them to encounter God and make a difference in the world.
