WE ARE HTC YOUTH

We aim to seek God's:

  • HONOR in our worship, which includes our voices, actions and attitudes. 
  • TRUTH as we believe His Word is the source of all wisdom, encouragement and inspiration. 
  • COMMUNITY by living in fellowship with each other, yet being a lighthouse to the world that doesn't know Him, anchored in our Savior.

Fireworks Fundraiser 2022

Thursday-Monday, June 30-July 4, 10am-10pm,  HTC

It's that time of year again!


Over the year, we have had the amazing company of HTC adults volunteering in Fireworks Sales for Summer Camp for our students! Proceeds from sales helps to give across-the-board scholarships to every student, and pays for the bus and counselors every summer at Hume Lake!


The City requires every volunteer to be 18 and older to sell fireworks so we need y'all to help while our students promote the booth from the street!


So, if you're able to come in for 1 or more 2-hour shifts from 10am-10pm on June 30-July 4, we'd love to have you!


SIGN UP FOR VOLUNTEER SLOTS

Student Leadership Committee

HTC Youth believes in the potential of students in taking their place in making a difference in their own youth group, which in turn make a difference in their church and their community!

The Student Leadership Committee (aka SLC) functions similar to a local school's ASB or Associated Student Body where there are sub-committees or departments and through them, elevate HTC Youth to a level of leadership and involvement.  The three sub-committees are:

The Welcoming Committee
Members here should have a heart for every student, as students can sometimes feel anxious, unwelcome or lonely. The Welcoming Committee ensures that HTC Youth remains to be a welcoming environment for regular and new students alike!

The Worship Committee
Here, the desire is for every student to hear the voice of God and feel his presence. Members must be a member of the Youth Band or A/V (Audio Visual) Team or both. (Note: A member of the band or A/V team need not be in the committee). The goals for this team is to ensure every week, we will have an amazing time worshipping our Lord.

The Workshops Committee
This Committee is focused on learning and growing. Students here help organize workshops on every skill and discipline they believe students want to grow in. Whether its preaching, prayer, fasting, or giving, its working with Youth Leaders to ensure that the students have representation in what they are eager and needing to learn.

Host a Missionary for a Year

For years, HTC has partnered with a global organization called the Pais Movement, in hosting Pais Teams. Pais Teams are a small group of Young Adults that are recruited from all over the world to serve alongside churches like HTC to reach local schools and college campuses.


This coming fall, we are receiving missionaries and we need to place them in host homes with HTC families! Would you be interested in having an international young adult in your home?
