Welcome to GCC Madera’s Youth Ministry!

We are glad you’re interested in our Youth Ministry. Find out more below.

At Pursuit Student Ministries we desire to make mature followers of Christ by:

Sound Biblical Teaching

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15).

Creating Personal Relationships with Christ

Jesus said “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except through me” (John 14:6).

So, flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord with a pure heart.
– 2 Timothy 2:22 –

Weekly Events

Sunday Mornings – 9:30 AM

Sunday mornings are dedicated to the study of God’s word. Here we take a closer look at God’s word and how we can apply it to our daily lives.

Wednesday Nights – 6:30 to 8 PM

Our goal on Wednesday nights is to reach students where they are and help to connect them with other Christians. Students will hear a lesson from God’s word and separate into appropriate age and gender groups for a small groups study. Often, we include games and worship musicc.

Annual Events

Winter Retreats

A short overnight retreat at our church campus. Filled with warship, games, our annual nerf war. This is a great time of spiritual growth, biblical fellowship, and fun!

Summer Camps

Every Summer Pursuit Student Ministries takes a week and commits it to a concentrated focus on God and outrageous fun! Camp is a great time to get away, be challenged in your personal relationship with Jesus, and to enjoy fellowship with friends. These memories last a lifetime.
