MDUMC Youth is dedicated to three things:

- Friendly and meaningful relational investment in the lives of students and parents

- Honest and authentic Bible teaching

- Active and missional service of our local, national, and international neighbors

Our passion is deeper than youth ministry… it’s family ministry. From retreats, service opportunities, Impact, and Bible studies to Workcamp and The Refuge we are dedicated to providing students and their families with a friendly, honest, and loving church environment.

Our aim is to help students continually cultivate a desire to discover and develop a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. We value our role in both the community and in the lives of students and do not take our responsibility lightly. Our staff is committed to helping families experience the transformational love of God through prayer, relationships, and action.
