YOUTH MINISTRY

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.

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. 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.

Jr High Youth/Confirmation Ministry

We’re making big and exciting changes!
A new confirmation season has begun.
We are politely asking for $100 per student to cover materials and overheads for the entire semester (September-May) of Junior High Confirmation Ministry.  You can sign-up for the class and make your payment by clicking the button below.
If you have any questions, or cannot afford to pay, please contact Pastor Scott.

High School Youth Ministry

We meet in the Youth Room at the Shea Campus.
This is a great spot to chill out, play music and games, learn the Word of God and have fun times with like-minded High School students.
We’ve had an exciting 2019 so far!  24 students spent 4 nights at the National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis with 29,976 fellow Lutherans!  Check out the video below.  Our group is a great mix of people and the environment is relaxed and non-judgmental.  YOU BE YOU – that’s all I ask!
We’re also a safe environment and we want you to be open about your relationship with God and any issues you want to talk about.
We have some exciting trips planned and Shepherd of the Desert is commitment to you!
