Teaching Christians Biblical Christianity

Junior High Youth Group

“…that you may be filled with the knowledge of
His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to
walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him,
bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the
knowledge of God.” – Colossians 1:9b-10

Junior High Youth Group exists to train young adults to grow in the knowledge of Christ and to learn how to pattern their lives after Him in everything, including strong character and true servanthood.

Our youth leaders teach through a variety of books and topical studies on practical, biblical tools for Christian living from trusted biblical writers. Meetings include discussion and a focus on small group times, along with time for fun and fellowship.  Recent studies have included: The Fruitful Life (Dr. Jerry Bridges), Walking with God(J.C. Ryle), and A Simple Christianity (John MacArthur). Youth events are split between service projects and fun, relationship-building group events. Junior High meets weekly on Wednesday evenings, 7:00PM – 8:00PM.

Junior High includes ages 12-14 (grades 8-9). If you have any further questions, please email youth group leaders Ryan Smidt or Jason Fremont at juniorhigh@tcbc.us. Please check our events page for any updates to youth group events or changes to time or location.

Jason and Megan Fremont have been working with the Junior High Youth Group for the last few years. They both enjoy working with the youth and have had a heart for this ministry for many years. They enjoy watching the kids grow not just into young adults, but also in their faith and walk with the Lord. Jason and Megan have been married since June of 2011, and have a beautiful daughter Emery, almost two (who has her daddy wrapped around her finger already), and are expecting their second child in the beginning of September. They are so thankful the Lord has allowed them to be a part of this ministry at TCBC and hope they can continue for as long as the Lord leads.

Ryan and Stephanie Smidt have served as junior high youth leaders for the last eight years. They enjoy building relationships with the kids and watching them grow and mature. Through those relationships, they hope to be able to share what God has done in their lives and pray it makes an impact on the lives of the kids. Being able to teach and work with the youth is a privilege, and they enjoy being able to share God’s truths with them. Ryan and Steph have been married since 2006, and have four children.
