The REVIVE Youth Ministry exists for 6-12th grade students who are believers or unbelievers. Our goal is to reach students where they live and connect them to a community where Christ’s love is shared. Church of the Open Door exists to glorify God in every avenue of life. Our desire for the youth is to develop a strong, mature relationship with their God through exciting interaction in God’s Word. We want the youth to connect with God and others through weekly and monthly gatherings as well as discipleship programs offered by the Youth Ministry.
There are three types of ministry environments for students, each one being designed to strategically invite students on a journey into deeper relationships with Jesus, their peers and their leaders. Each environment is designed with every student in mind—the student who’s grown up in church and the first-time visitor, too.
WEEKLY PROGRAMS: (see YBF and Sunday Night—REVIVE below): Our weekly programs are designed to help students connect with God and others, as well as learn to better live out their faith.
SPECIAL EVENTS: Every month we host at least one special event designed to help students connect with their peers and leaders. These events are outreach opportunities as well as fellowship activities. Special events are often the place where students will walk into our ministry for the first time.
SERVICE/MISSION TRIPS: Each year we take our students on at least one service/mission/leadership trip. These trips are designed to help students gain an understanding of what ministry is: serving and glorifying our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Youth Bible Fellowship (YBF)
On Sunday mornings, we meet in the youth room from 9:30-10:30am. We start with a hot topic discussion before jumping into the Bible where youth will experience practical application for their growth in Christ.
REVIVE is our weekly Sunday night youth group gathering for 6th-12th grade students. The time is from 6-8pm, although everyone is invited to come a few minutes early and to leave a few minutes late to hang out with friends. Each week includes a variety of games, a time of worship, and a challenge from God’s Word.

We encourage students to serve the Lord with their life wherever they can minister. Some areas of ministry include AWANA on Wednesday nights and Kids’ Connection on Sunday mornings.
The LOR (Leaders of REVIVE) ministry provides students with a monthly opportunity to sharpen their leadership skills for life. LOR is open to all 11th and 12th grade students who want to become better leaders for tomorrow. LOR provides monthly readings, prayer, and creative opportunities to serve in REVIVE.
