MCC Youth

Our Vision: is to see students transformed by Jesus in order to live, love, and serve like Him. 

We do this in our mid-week gatherings in the youth building located east of the main building. We spend time playing games, learning from the Bible, and separating into a small group time. 

We also periodically have different events to serve the community, create opportunities for outreach, develop deeper relationships with one another, grow in our faith, and have fun!

Our Values:

Love Others: We strive to teach and model sacrificial love for others as Jesus modeled for us. 

Inviting: Our hope is that every student feels loved, accepted, and important in our youth ministry, despite ANY differences we may have. 

Truth: We desire to stay true to the inspired message of the Bible. The Bible is our sole inspiration and source of teaching. 

Growth: We want to come alongside our students to help them foster growth in their relationships with God. One way we do this is by teaching and training spiritual disciplines.

Mission: We empower our students to love and experience Jesus' mission of making disciples of all nations. We do that locally and abroad. 

Safety: We provide trustworthy, background checked adult leaders and a safe environment for students. We are here to partner with parents/guardians for the growth and wellbeing of their children. 

If you have any additional questions please contact Jacob Vaden.

Upcoming Events

  • Night Strike

    May 4th: Our students will be participating in an event called Nightstrike. This ministry brings relief to our local homeless community in Portland every Thursday night by offering a variety of services including a hot meal, a free haircut, shave, feet washing, and old shoes/clothing/sleeping bags replaced. Our students will be actively involved serving in these different ways. We will meet at the church at 6:00 and will be back from the event at about 10:00.
