‘Ministry Teams’  

Worship: Once a month we have student led worship. Our Worship Ministry plan out the set-list, singers, musicians, control the sound system, along with planning all the technical aspects of worship.

 

 

Media Team: The Media team captures the greatest youth group moments there are. Join in taking photos, making videos, and updating social media. Like being behind the camera instead of in front of it? Then this is for you! 

“Pretty” Committee: Sometimes old navy blue walls become draining on your eyes…The “pretty” committee formed with the idea of jazzing up our youth room making it a welcoming, friendly, cool place, and all those good things teens want in a hang out. Thanks to them we have nice things to stare at on our walls (or just random writing students leave in neon on our black boards)!

Snack Ministry: The “Snack Dudes” organize snacks donations and menus for youth group. They love making yummy treats for their peers along with cleaning up the mess they make! Interested in donating snacks for our youth group time? Contact bgyouthmin@gmail.com, please note Youth Group is a NUT-FREE zone!

Student Leadership Team: Leading a group is hard, leading your peers is even harder. These high school students meet at least once a month where they go through training to become the best student leader they can be. Their goal is to plan events for students, lead ministry teams, and make youth group a place students want to be. Sometimes us old adults don’t know the “hip” new ways. Thankful we have our SLT to help us out! Interested in joining us at one of our meetings? Contact tcolon1@ithaca.edu for meeting times and location!

Stupid-Time Ministry: 

stupid timeEveryone loves a little fun and games every now and then! Without our Stupid-Time ministry we would not get all those fun and games every week. Stupid-Time ministry find large group games we can all play, that are some of the funniest games to watch and play! Students come up with games, gather materials needed, and then execute the game plan during youth group! It’s a great way for students to learn how to adjust to larger group dynamics! If you any fun game ideas just let one of our leaders know and we can direct you to one of our Stupid-Time peeps!
