About The Youth Ministry
The teenage years are very crucial in the development and formation of each and every individual human being. There is much change—sociologically, physiologically, emotionally, spiritually, and physically—that students must go through and endure, which can be very overwhelming. In the midst of these changes, our desire is to partner with parents and leaders in order to provide a safe and stable environment where students would be able to explore and test their faith through many different opportunities, and to build a strong foundation for the rest of their lives. It is with this in mind that the pulse of the youth ministry of Korean Presbyterian Church of Minnesota is characterized by a “6/60” focus, where our hope is that the six years spent in the youth group for each student will be preparation, development, and training for the sixty years after they graduate.

Mission
To help students become disciple-making disciples who will bless, influence, and transform the world for God’s glory—one person, one family, one neighborhood, one city at a time

VISION
Embrace
We embrace our true identity in Christ, and embrace others in Christ, because Christ embraced us first

Empower
We will seek to empower ourselves and others – especially those who are marginalized and oppressed – in Christ, for grace does not keep us where we are, but takes us to where we need to be

Engage
We are called to be on mission for God, and so we will seek to be proactive in creating and cultivating meaningful relationships with those near and around us through word and deed

Worship and Meeting Information
The youth group consists of 7th -12th grade students, who normally meet on two days:
Sundays–worship service begins at 11 AM, with a Bible study afterwards and lunch
Fridays–we begin at 7:30 PM, and these meetings are more casual and devoted to fellowship and in-depth study of God’s Word, followed by a time of snacks and refreshments
