Children & Youth

Youth

Jesus said, “Let the children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:14)

Our mission is to raise up children and youth as disciples of Christ who are committed to following Jesus, making more disciples and sharing Him with the world. The children in our program come from many backgrounds, but they all need strong Christian mentors and role models. We look for volunteers with patience and the heart of a teacher who can model the love of Jesus through words, actions and character. Skyland also follows a Safe Sanctuaries Policy to ensure the safety of our children and youth.
