Acceptance, encouragement, fun, and lots of love.

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.

Youth Worship Service, 10am, Chapel
Come worship with us as we begin the series “Wake Up The Wonder!” There will be coffee and breakfast provided. Questions? Contact Shea.
