Our youth ministry is a very active group of young men and women, who grow together in Christ through various activities. The youth group is made up of 6th-12th grade students from different schools in the Montgomery area. We also have a junior youth group, which is made of 3rd-5th graders.

Mission Statement

The mission of University Youth Ministry is To disciple middle and high school students and further them in faithful service to God and fellow man.

What we do


We offer a variety of activities/events to help our students grow closer to Christ and each other throughout the year. We have Sunday morning and Wednesday evening Bible classes, monthly youth group devotionals and area-wide devotionals, Bible studies, movie nights, and much more! During the summer, we take advantage of the long break our students get. We pack our schedule with a week of Bible camp, a youth rally, service days, VBS, and many other events throughout the months of June and July.

Lads to Leaders Program


We teach our young people how to lead through various means in the Lads to Leaders/Leaderettes program. This program is designed for students to participate in events such as Speech, Song Leading, Bible Bowl, Debate, Mass Media, etc.. Our participants spend hours preparing for their selected events. We take a large group of our University family to Atlanta every Easter weekend for our students to share all they have prepared over the past year.
