OUR TEEN PROGRAM
Since 2018, JosiahTEENS has been committed to educating, empowering and transforming young students into passionate world leaders.
Students who graduate from JosiahKids transition into our JosiahTEENS program on their 14th birthday to begin engaging at a higher level of development through educational workshops, faith-based mentoring, leadership training, guest speaker events and much more. Students in this program still maintain involvement in our music, innovation, and dance programs.
Our passion is to build lifelong relationships with our students well beyond their high school and college years. Our graduates will have opportunities to serve as student leaders, coaches and peer mentors.
GUEST SPEAKER EVENTS
The Barna Group estimates that 80 percent of those reared in the church will be "disengaged" by the time they are 29. Barna Group president David Kinnaman describes the reality in stark terms: "Imagine a group photo of all the students who come to your church in a typical year. Take a big fat marker and cross out three out of every four faces. That's the probable toll of spiritual disengagement as students navigate the next two decades.
