Nazarene Youth International (NYI) exists because the Church of the Nazarene believes that young people are an integral part of the Church. Because of that belief, NYI is committed to leading young people into a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ and to facilitate their growth as disciples for Christian service. It works to accomplish a threefold strategy of:

1) Evangelism, reaching young people for Christ;

2) Discipleship, equipping young people to be Christlike followers; 

3) Leadership Development, empowering young people to serve others.


9am Sunday

Teens meet each Sunday morning to learn what the Bible has to say about navigating everyday life and culture.


6pm Wednesday (Fall through Spring)

Teen Bible Quizzing is a way for students to dig deeper into God's word and hide it in their hearts for a lifetime. This year we are studying the Hebrews and I and II Peter. We cover one chapter per week throughout the school year. Once a month we meet with other teens on our district (from Northern Illinois to as far south as Danville, IL). During a quiz, teams compete against each other to see who can answer the most questions correctly. This is a fun way to get to know the Word of God and also to get to know other teens on our district. Any student in 6th through 12th grade is invited to participate. Contact Kayla for more information.


Teen Movie Nights 6:30-10pm Friday

Teens will get together to enjoy movies with a positive message, great snacks, and fellowship. The cost is $3 per person. Bring a pillow, blanket, and a friend or two! See our church calendar for upcoming moving nights.

Parent Meetings: 7-8:30pm Friday

Parents of teens will meet to encourage each other, pray for each other, and learn from each other. Meeting dates for this year are located on the church calendar. Contact Carola for more information.

And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. Deuteronomy 6:6-7
