Middle School & High School

Through Sunday night gatherings, connection events, regional youth gatherings, and summer mission trips, we desire for each student to be deeply connected to God and others. The gospel of Jesus Christ is our core message. Come join our ECC Youth family to grow in the knowledge of Jesus and be equipped to make Him known!
