High School Ministry

High School Ministry at Good Shepherd

High School Ministry is deeply relational. Together we explore big questions about what it means to be a person of faith in an ever-changing world. We understand that holiness is experienced both in still quiet moments and large community experiences. Through conversations, stories, activities, and adventures, we ponder faith in our daily lives and in a global context. God is big, Jesus speaks Truth, the Spirit is moving. Come as you are, you are welcome here.


As you approach this season of becoming


May you keep faith with your spirit.

Listening to the voice that calls you beloved,

Beyond any accomplishment or accolade

The Holy Creator knows what is still to blossom in you.


May you hold the moments gently

Breathe into them and let them breathe in you

Do not force the memory you have seen others make

The Spirit is doing a new thing in you.


May you notice the community around you

Harvesting the love, wisdom, and delight

That is offering itself up to you.

The Holy Teacher is unfolding around and within you.
