Welcome to YTH, here at Shepherd of the Desert.

We strive to create an upbeat environment where you’ll feel comfortable inviting your friends, experiencing the Bible in a relevant way, and building meaningful relationships.  Each week we’ll spend time worshiping with our band, watching videos, and playing creative games.

Don’t feel like you have to participate! Just make yourself at home and enjoy.

If you’re looking to become more involved in our ministry, or you just have question, come find me or another adult in the room and ask. We’re not scary…promise! I think we have a great group and I promise that if you just give us a shot, you’ll fit right in.

Every month we go out and do something fun as a group. This could be a movie, a concert, a meal, or something crazy like making the world’s largest slip ‘n slide.  There are also options to volunteer at events like Vacation Bible School and we encourage you to attend our special 5pm Sunday Worship Sunday (before High School / after Junior High Youth Group).
