What Is The Yard?

The Yard exists to create disciples who will go and make more disciples. Everything we do at the Yard is designed to help middle and high school students connect, grow and go:

The Yard seeks to CONNECT students to the truth of the Gospel and to a strong Gospel community.

Through teaching, discipleship, and relationships, the Yard desires for students to GROW in their understanding of the Gospel and its impact on their daily lives.

Finally, the Yard exists to prepare students to GO and be on Gospel mission wherever the Lord has placed them.


We meet weekly and have many events throughout the year to help us connect, grow and go.

Sunday mornings: 9:15-10:30am

Wednesday nights: 7-8:30pm

Come check us out in our new youth center! Rooms 81 and 83 in the downstairs part of the new building!

Medical Release Form

We must have a notarized medical release form on file for students participating in our out of town events and retreats. Once you have one on file, it is good for the remainder of a student's time in the Yard (through high school graduation.) Complete the form and turn it in to Liz!

Leading The Yard

We are incredibly blessed with the most amazing volunteers that can be found on the planet. Made up of college students, recent graduates, and other adults from the church, our leaders are the coolest people in the triangle and that's not even the best part about them! The greatest thing is the way they care about leading, loving and discipling our students spiritually. Ultimately, they're here to get to know students, have fun, and point them towards the Lord.
