Students are integral to the mission of Resurrection! We invest in the next generation by supporting parents and connecting students with adult mentors and peers who also love Jesus. RezYouth gathers on Wednesday nights to hang out, worship, learn, and pray. To receive regular email updates on RezYouth news and events, sign up below.

For Parents

We believe parents are the primary disciplers of their children—we exist to support you! Alongside providing your student with a relational network of adult mentors and like-minded peers, we love helping parents think about their discipleship role through offering helpful resources and being available for pastoral support. Keep in touch with RezYouth through our weekly news email and don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions!
