Lynn Haven Youth


Lynn Haven Methodist’s Youth ministry is devoted to the spiritual growth of middle and high school students in their Christian faith. We offer a safe and positive atmosphere for students to grow in character by strengthening friendships, meeting new people, and serving God. Our mission is to lead every student to become a fully devoted follower of Christ.

Youth activities take place most Sunday and Wednesday evenings. Students can expect worship and Bible messages, small group time and having fun with their friends. We also attend amazing retreats, fun events, service projects and mission trips. Our Youth program has an outstanding, dedicated and passionate volunteer leadership team that devotes their time, energy, and heart to leading students to love God and love other people. We couldn’t hope to serve these students without the leaders that God has called to serve in our ministry. On Sunday mornings, Youth are invited to participate in the main church service along with their families.

V.I.P. Section

Dear Parents,

We want to invite you to partner with us in our new V.I.P. (Very Important Partner) program. This fall, we began providing a weekly outline for our Wednesday evening Youth small groups so that you can have conversations with your students about what they are learning. 

As we teach through each study, we’ll provide you with an overview of what we will cover, as well as some follow-up questions you and your student might use to continue the discussion.

If you missed our latest in person V.I.P. Event on 11.1.23, we have loaded some valuable resources here on the topic that was covered “Parenting in a Tech World”. 

We hope these tools prove useful in creating meaningful conversations for your family! Please contact me if we can help you in any other way.

Thanks & God Bless,
Neal McGee
Youth Minister
