killen youth ministry

The Killen Youth Ministry is a place where students can grow in their relationship with Jesus. We encourage growing in our knowledge of who God is, our love for God and His love for us, and our service to Him and others. Our students come from various backgrounds, including multiple schools. Nevertheless, we stay busy working together for the sake of the Kingdom. There is always something going on where you can find encouragement and unity.

In addition to classes on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, our teens are involved in devotionals, conventions, service projects, camps, mission trips, retreats, and other opportunities to grow spiritually. We welcome YOU to join us any time!
