Youth Ministry

Equipping students to live lives devoted to Jesus.


Hope in the City’s youth ministry is called the CORE, which stands for Christ Our Redeemer Emmanuel. Our prayer is that any time someone interacts with our community that they experience Christ!

Middle School & High School Students

We know that there are a lot of things competing for your time! We’re not just another activity to add to your busy schedule. Our prayer is that your time with us will be encouraging, impactful, and life changing. You might want to check out the CORE if you want to…

  • Be part of a community where you can be raw & real…100% yourself
  • Thrive in this season, not just survive
  • Be more like Jesus!
  • Have a lasting impact on those around you
  • Walk in the purpose and destiny that God has for you
  • Receive tools that will help you now and in years to come

The leadership team at the CORE is all about helping you follow Jesus more fully, and we have a lot of fun in the process!


We’re committed to partnering with you to see your youth understand and embrace who God created them to be and walk in all that He has for them! We want to support the things that you’re instilling at home and provide opportunities for your sons and daughters to grow spiritually. Our goal is to create an environment where youth can experience God for themselves. Every week we see God do things that only He can do … heal, transform, convict, encourage, and more. The CORE leadership team does an incredible job of walking with the youth week in and week out as they apply what they’re learning to daily life.
