Hope High School Youth

Hope High School

No matter what high school you go to, you belong to Hope High!

Our theme verse for this year is: “So let us stop going over the basic teachings about Christ again and again. Let us go on instead and become mature in our understanding.” Hebrews ‭6:1‬a ‭NLT‬

My prayer for each student this year, is that Jesus can open their heart more than ever. That they can dig deeper into this life-changing, transformational person they become through Jesus (everyday!) I know you all have daily struggles, but Jesus is with you and he’s going to do some awesome things in Hope High School, I’m excited! Will you join me?

-National Youth Gathering is September 9-13, 2022 Register HERE
-Would your student like to be in a small group that meets in someone’s home? Would you like to host a small group in your home? Stay tuned for more deets about small groups.
-Hope High School RETREAT! Is tentatively set for November 12-14, 2021.

PODCASTS
Tune into the One to One Podcast
I sit down, One to One, with youth (Season 2, it's your parents!) and ask them 3 questions. (1) Who are you? (2) Who’s Jesus to you/How’s your faith? (3) What are you here to talk about? The final question is the most fun for me, as I haven idea what my guests are going to bring up. Check it out!

PARENT MEETINGS
This is a Zoom or in-Person Meeting for me to get to know you as parents. Whether you are a new incoming parent or you are a seasoned HopeSeattleYM parent, these meetings are designed for me to learn how I can partner with you to help your student grow closer to Jesus, gain insights from you and work towards creating a welcoming environment for youth group. I look forward to connecting! If this is on your heart, reach out HERE.

JOURNEY
Journey isn’t just confirmation it’s a strategy to help you continue to speak faith into your teenagers life. For high schoolers, we have 3 additional steps for Journey (a confirmation experience). It’s been confirmed through research that teens who have mentors (in addition to their parents) understand the world God has placed then in better, have a deeper commitment to Jesus, and continue to pursue their faith throughout their life. I want this for your family, but most importantly, I want this for every youth in West Seattle; but it starts with every family at Hope. High Schoolers are on some many different paths. If youth have mentors in their lives they have a trusted adult, beside you, they can rely on, have someone they can ask their questions, and someone who can help guide them. Check out Hope’s youth website for more info or email me and we can set up a plan.

NATIONAL YOUTH GATHERING 2022
National Youth Gathering 2022. This happens once every 3 years. I’ve attached their website below for you to learn more about this event; however, its a youth gathering where about 10,000 other youth all gather in one city and we take it over!
We all stay in hotels spread throughout the city and every night we have a mass gathering in the Houston Astrodome. During the day there are impactful breakout sessions at the Convention Center that help youth grow in their faith. Night Life events, inflatable obstacle courses, 9 in the sky and other fun games can be played any time during the day in the Convention Center! There’s so much.
