JedidiahHigh School Ministry
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.
Due to the impact of COVID-19 and regulations from the county, we have suspended our in-person gatherings on Sundays and Wednesdays. We are continuing to meet Wednesdays at 7pm via YouTube Live as well as hosting small groups over zoom, and would love to have you join us! Email [email protected] for more information and if you would like to join our mailing list to get ministry updates.

SERVE WITH HIGH SCHOOL
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.

Who is 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.
WHAT WE DO
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 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.
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 encourage cross-generational relationships and value adults mentoring students. This happens during official HS meetings, but also outside of organized meetings.
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.
