Youth Ministry at DFUMC

He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.

He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.  

Titus 3:5

Important. Included. Engaged.

The mission of Renew Youth is to develop and grow each student’s relationship with Jesus by engaging all youth in meaningful service, activities, and discussions, challenging students to push beyond their norms, and to be agents of change in the world.


Sunday | 10 am

All students are invited to join us for donuts and discussion in the Youth Activities Center (YAC) every Sunday morning. After announcements and an opening activity, students dive into a video lesson brought by some of the biggest names in youth ministry, provoking great discussion and questions related to the Christian faith. Students and leaders explore the answers to these questions and how they might live out a Christian life in an ever-changing world.

Wednesday | 6:30 pm

All students worship together and listen to a large group message. Then students split into one of four small groups, one for each grade range and gender (i.e. Middle School Boys group), where they will discuss in-depth questions related to the lesson. These discussions encourage students to ask hard questions about faith and allow them to explore ways to grow in their relationship with Christ.


We offer special events and retreats several times each school year. Regularly occurring events like Prayer Breakfast, Servant Saturday, Game Nights, and Renew Extras break us out of the routine into fun and exciting moments; while bigger and crazier events Winter Jam, Ski Trips in the winter, Beach Trips like BigStuf in the summer, Retreats to Camp Glisson, or gigantic worship conferences in Gatlinburg give us a chance to escape the ordinary and truly dive into the extraordinary that is God’s creation.
