Open Minds, Full Hearts.

Note from Director


The teenage years are an emotional rollercoaster that brings questions of confidence, identity, and faith. Our student ministry provides a safe environment that helps our middle and high school students become young men and women of God. Through experiences that deepen their faith, connections are formed that last a lifetime. Consider joining our youth family on this wild ride.

Youth Group: Restore

Students today are at an elevated risk of suffering from anxiety and depression. At HIEC, we strive to teach our youth how to manage their stress using their faith in God. Every fourth Sunday of the month, our students gather to engage in a spiritual exercise that helps eliminate anxiety. Students are then invited to enjoy a light dinner and use the Youth Frost Center as their own study space. They are welcome to bring their schoolbooks and friends and use the time to prepare for the upcoming month. 

Opportunities for Youth

Youth Group

Youth group meets every second, third, and fourth Sunday of the month and is open to rising 6th-12th grade students. We gather together not only for theological conversations but also movie nights, holiday parties, and fun study sessions. We invite you to grab your friends and join us for any of these events.


Our youth can jump in on this opportunity anytime between grades 6-12 and have training classes available for them throughout the school year. They enjoy fun perks such as pizza parties, pool parties, and an award ceremony at the end of the year!


Our confirmation class is open to high school students and will begin in the fall. Classes are on Sundays at 9:00 AM.
