About Gateway Youth
Welcome to Gateway Youth, the dynamic youth ministry of Connecticut Korean Presbyterian Church. We are dedicated to creating a supportive and nurturing environment where young individuals can connect with God, discover their purpose, and cultivate lasting friendships with like-minded peers.
At Gateway Youth, our mission is to provide a vibrant space for spiritual growth, community engagement, and personal development. We believe in empowering young people to navigate life's challenges with grace, wisdom, and a strong foundation in faith. Through various activities, events, and programs, we strive to equip the next generation with the tools they need to make a positive impact in the world.
Our youth programs cater to individuals between the ages of 13 and 18, offering them a range of opportunities to connect, learn, and grow. These programs include:
1. Weekly Gatherings
Join us every Friday evening for our engaging and thought-provoking weekly gatherings. Through inspiring sermons, interactive discussions, and uplifting worship, we explore relevant topics and biblical teachings that resonate with the challenges and experiences of today's youth.
2. Small Groups
Our small groups provide a more intimate setting for young individuals to dive deeper into their faith journey. Led by adult mentors, these groups encourage open conversations, prayer, and accountability, fostering meaningful relationships and fostering spiritual growth.
3. Retreats and Conferences
We organize annual retreats and conferences that offer youth the chance to step away from their daily lives, immerse themselves in worship, and build connections with fellow believers from different backgrounds. These events are designed to inspire, challenge, and refresh minds and hearts.
4. Outreach and Community Service
At Gateway Youth, we believe in living out our faith by loving and serving our community. We actively participate in various outreach programs, community service projects, and mission trips, providing opportunities for young individuals to make a tangible difference in the lives of others.
