REAL Youth


A youth group whose passion is all about knowing the REAL JESUS and making Him known.


REAL Youth is a unique ministry for teenagers. It’s much more than a weekly service. We believe their lives are defined and directed by a loving God rather than by life’s circumstances. Our goal is to help them connect with God, their peers and committed leaders through healthy relationships.

REAL Youth meets every Wednesday night at 7:15 p.m. for a time of powerful worship and relevant teaching followed by games, activities and a time to connect with friends. For more information contact 713-453-7000 ext 231.
