What is Youth Ministry?

Agricola's Youth Ministry is the Church's effort to help each & every young person grow personally & spiritually.

Our purpose of the program is to prepare young individuals for effective ministry to middle high, senior high, or college students and their families.

Training young people to lead the cause of Christ, and apply Christianity to every area of life is what "youth ministry" is about. If we don't know that, the kids won't either.

Youth ministry is more than programs and events. It's about building christ into our everyday lives. Build diciples daily.

We have assembled a series of programs and activities to give young people a chance to participate in Church life, develop their own faith and spirituality, and discover new friendships.

Listed here are some educational videos to offer additional avenues and methods on how to develope long-term successful relationships with your kids.

Other products and services from Agricola


Moms and Tots

The idea was that the children would get exposed to other Finnish-speaking children and parents, and would also give a chance for moms to expose their children to Christian morals & lessons. It was started with just a handful of moms as a chance to get together with other mothers of Finnish descent who had children not yet attending school.


Agricola Children's Camp

When you hung out with your buddies at the swimming hole, took nature walks, enjoyed the friendly competition of outdoor games or made wonderful “objects d’art” from old bits of junk. A bus to Agricola Children’s Camp leaves from Agricola Lutheran Church on Saturday at 9:00 a.m. and will returns on Fridayat approximately 5:00 p.m.
