20 years on...

By PaisleyJade - Wednesday, October 10, 2018

It's pretty amazing to step out with a crazy dream and then 20 years later to see that dream still alive and influencing generations to follow.

20 years ago my husband and I had a vision to start a youth church. We wanted it to be more than games for youth - we wanted young people to learn how to worship and hear messages that were relevant to them. We were told it wouldn't work - but 20 years on it's still going and we still hear stories about how the youth church has impacted people's lives.

Dare to dream bigger than your comfort zone!

Second photo - the next generations worshipping to our old classics - some of the youth from Flame Youth Sunday night.

Thank you to our amazing youth pastors from throughout the years... Shaun & Raneeta Curtis, Isaac & Dominique Cates, Matthew & Leigh Guddat and our amazing current youth pastors Matthew & Zara Pyle.  Thank you for sowing into the vision!
