Youth Ministry

img35The Youth/Teen group at ODBC is for ages 13-18 years of age. Brian and Melanie Johnston are now leading this group. Brian has many years of experience with teen leadership and a heart for this ministry. They are parents to three children, ages 8-24, and grandparents to three. There is a Sunday morning class that meets in the teen building behind the church. Our goal for the teens is to equip them with skills to defend their faith. We are, and will be, teaching various materials related to this subject. Apologetics is an important subject for any Christian, but vital for our Christian teens.

On Wednesday nights, we will be meeting at 6 P.M. in the teen building for a time of fellowship. This summer we will be starting “Secret Church” on Wednesdays from 6-7 P.M. This is a way to demonstrate to our teens the oppression that Christians in other countries suffer for the faith.

We also hope to plan some “fun” activities for the coming year–cookouts, concerts, and possibly a trip to the mountains.
