Acceptance, encouragement, fun, and lots of love.


Meet Shea Watts  
Director of Youth Ministries
Shea comes to us with wonderful experience as a youth leader, worship leader, and musician. He and his wife, Kathryn, moved here for her to finish her degree in Endodontic Dentistry at OSU. Shea is working on a Ph.D from Chicago Theological Seminary (he's there Mon.-Wed. each week), and brings a vibrant sense of faith and fun. He will work with Verge and Older Youth, and may lend his preaching and music abilities from time to time at Gathering. Contact:


Teenagers want a place where they are accepted as they truly are - no pretense, no facades. This is where they can share their worlds, their struggles, the things that make them laugh. They do service work, both locally, nationally, even internationally sometimes.

Sunday Mornings:
Youth Groups start at 10:00 Gathering. After that they go to explore the bible as they connect it to their world.

Sunday Evenings (During the school year)
Note: 8th graders may attend either/both Verge and/or High School Youth Group
--- Verge (grades 5-8), unless otherwise specified, 4-5:30pm
--- YG (Youth Group) (grades 8-12), unless otherwise specified, 5:30-7:30pm
We have a new joint venture with Boulevard Presbyterian Church with planned events twice a month, one with Boulevard and one with just our youth group. When we don’t have a planned event, we’d love to have you come volunteer with Verge and stay for F3 (Fellowship, Friends and Food).
