SNEUCC Youth Revival

In response to the restrictions of Covid-19, our 2020 Youth Revival went virtual.  A World Turned Upside Down was a creative response to restrictions on in-person gatherings.

Thinking About Working For God

The primary aim of the TAWFG program is to notice, name, and nurture youth who have gifts for ministry. This program includes the "SHINE" retreat for high school students, leadership opportunities in the wider church, and paid apprenticeships in the local church.
