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 (Matt. 22:37) 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 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.
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 accountability and mentorship 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 lives serve as a platform to live out and share the gospel. We go to Honduras annually and plan local service projects throughout the year.
We strive to set students up for success in their faith beyond HS and have special programming for Jr and Sr students. 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 (with adherence to our youth policies).
