middle & high school


Our Youth ministry is a place where young people can find community, encounter God, grow in their relationship with Him, reach their friends for Jesus, and have loads of fun doing it!

At Living Word, we encourage our youth to sit together or with family on Sundays. We also have regular youth nights on Wednesdays and other fun events throughout the year for young people aged 11-18.

Our vision is to encourage, equip, and empower the next generation through the Word of God, to be strong and courageous in their faith, their family, and their community. Our mission is for every youth to be seen, encouraged, equipped, empowered, discipled, & sent. 

Be strong & courageous. do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the lord your god will be with you wherever you go.
JOshua 1:9 


Meet Pastor Krystal

Pastor Krystal-Joy and her husband Nate have a heart and a passion for youth and their families. This fun, dynamic duo has been serving youth and their families since 2004 right here at Living Word. As they have called LW home for more than 20 years, they know this is exactly where the Lord has called them to be. Their mission is to Encourage, Equip and Empower the next generation through the Word of God to be STRONG and COURAGEOUS in their faith, their family, and their community. The Lord has blessed Nate and Krystal-Joy with two wonderful kids, Kyla and Nathaniel who are excited to be part of our children's and youth ministry here at Living Word. We're so blessed that God has called the entire family to serve the Lord in this joyous season!
