Missio Youth's vision is to walk alongside kids loving them as they are while introducing them to a relational and intimate God. We hope to be a network of adults with whom kids can navigate the challenges of life in middle/high school. Along the way, we hope they learn who Jesus is and how he sees them as uniquely gifted and loved. We encourage kids to ask questions and lean into the unknown. In the end, we want to provide a safe space for your kids where they can be themselves and feel known and loved.
