We live in a culture that demands everything to be black or white, pro- or anti-, either with us or against us. We can often feel like we are forced to pick sides or become pigeon-holed into a specific niche. In our new series, we will be tackling the divisive issues that many of us face and how Jesus responded when people tried to pin Him down by pointing the questions back to the Kingdom of God.
Northbrook Covenant Youth is open to all students in grades 6 through 12--even if you don’t attend our church! All are welcome! Come exactly as you are! Our students meet on Sunday nights from 6–8 p.m. in the Youth Room for a time of worship, creative elements such as games and spiritual practices, and a message tailored directly for middle school and high school students from God’s word. Northbrook Covenant Youth is committed to building a community of students passionately following Jesus in a way that compels others to follow Him. There are many ways for our students to participate in service projects around the community along with fun outings and weekend retreats where students have the opportunity to grow deeper in their faith. If you have any questions, would like more information, or would like to volunteer, please contact the Director of Youth Ministries, Thomas Cellilli.

CHIC is held at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and is open to all High school students are eligible to attend CHIC if they will complete grade 9, 10, 11, or 12 in the academic school year on which CHIC falls.

Confirmation is a one-year discipleship program taught by the Director of Youth Ministries in conjunction with the Lead Pastor that is intended for middle school students (grades 6-8); however, if you have a student that is in high school and has not yet been confirmed, we encourage the student to join as well. Confirmation gives students the opportunity to learn the church’s history, truths of the Christian faith, and the stories of the Bible, while developing discipling relationships with pastors and mentors. Students learn to articulate what they believe about the Bible and how biblical faith translates into Christian living and responsibility in the world.
