The NYI Purpose is to lead youth into a relationship with Jesus Christ as their savior and Lord, and establish them as His disciples, characterized by a life of holiness expressed through devotion, worship, fellowship, stewardship, and witness.

Led by NYI President, Steve Weeks, our teens learn to love Jesus from a young age, and have a lot of fun along the way! The teens meet in Sunday School, as well as on Wednesday night for Bible study. Below you'll find a very small sample size of activities our teens are involved in. Visit us and track down Steve, or send us an email with any questions! We look forward to seeing you!

Building Leaders and Sharing Talents (BLAST) is a program that encourages teens to discover and utilize their special talents and gifts for the glory of Jesus! Blast events and competitions are held at the district level, and annually at Mount Vernon Nazarene University!

Concerts are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to fun events our teens attend. Environments like these can be an escape for the struggles and trials of everyday life. Any time a Christian band comes to town, we make it a priority to get our teens there for a time of fun, worship, and praise!

Our teens participate in multiple youth lock-ins around the Kanawha valley each year. It never fails to be a great time with games, food, movies, and fellowship!

The teens are no strangers to the mission field. Some of the missions our teens are involved in include Christmas shoebox ministry, Mountain Mission, and local food pantries.
