High School Ministry



Main Patio



YouTube Live + Zoom

Our High School Ministry, called Jedidah, exists to provide a safe and loving community for high school students that inspires a journey of faith, equips them for a lifelong walk with God, and prepares them to engage and impact their world for Christ.

*During COVID-19*

Due to the impact of COVID-19 and regulations from the county, we are continually updating our policies, gatherings, and practices. Here is the latest update to our programming.

Wednesdays. Welcome to Jedidiah Live! We are continuing to meet Wednesdays at 7pm via YouTube Live followed by small groups over zoom, and would love to have you join us! Send us an email to get added to our mailing list and access our zoom links.

Sundays. Join us every Sunday at 11am for a High School Sunday Service! We will host our High School Sundays outdoors on the main patio with masks and social distancing. The rest will be just like old times! Join us for announcements, games, teaching, and small group discussion. We can’t wait to see you!

Events. In order to accommodate the health practices of all of our families, we will continue to host a combination of in-person and digital events.

Registration helps us notify you with ministry updates, upcoming events and also provides us with important information to help keep youth safe. Thanks!


We need many types of leaders to relate to, love, and care for all of the students the Lord entrusts us with. There are two basic requirements for anyone considering serving in our youth ministry: a love for God and a heart to see high school students come to know Jesus and grow in their relationship with Him.

If you’re interested in serving with high school, fill our interest form.


The Student Leadership Team is a group of students assisting with different parts of high school ministry including planning activities, teaching, and creating a welcoming environment. Click the link below to fill out an application!

Why Jedidiah?

Our High School ministry is called Jedidiah. The name is taken from the story of David and Bathsheba in 2 Samuel. King David, the man said to be after God’s own heart, allows himself to be overcome with lust and sleeps with Bathsheba, another man’s wife. She becomes pregnant with his child and David has her husband killed to hide his sin. The baby dies shortly after birth and after a period of mourning, David lays with Bathsheba again. She becomes pregnant, gives birth to a son, and names him Solomon. God, however, gives him a special name as a message of forgiveness and redemption to David. God calls him Jedidiah, which means loved by God. As High School ministry at PBC we want students to know that whatever they may have done, said, thought, or been through, they are loved by God.


Sunday Gathering

We gather at 10:45 in the HS Room for worship, teaching, and fellowship. The aim is to get students into corporate worship and teach them God’s word.

Wednesday Nights

We gather from 7-8:30pm in the HS room for small groups. The aim is to get students to open and study God’s word together, as well as to provide a space for students to build relationships with each other and our adult volunteers.


We plan events throughout the year that are fun and easy events to invite friends to. Events serve the purpose of creating space for students to build relationships with each other and our adult volunteers.


We encourage students to engage in missions both locally and abroad. The biggest value we hope our students grasp is that their entire life serves as a platform to share the gospel. We go to Honduras annually and plan local service projects.

Jr/Sr Programming

We strive to set students up for success in their faith beyond HS and have special programming for Juniors and Seniors. The program is called Summit and aims at giving practical tools for life and faith post HS.

Camps & Retreats

We attend camp twice a year (winter and summer). The point of these camps and retreats is to get students out of their normal routine and to create space for spiritual impact.


We encourage cross-generational relationships and value adults mentoring students. This happens during official HS meetings, but also outside of organized meetings.

Parent Partnership

POP stand for Parent OPportunity and is our way of partnering with and resourcing parents to intentionally raise their child in the faith.  Our goal is to is help you grow with your kids.
