East White Oak Youth Ministries exists to be used by God in order to help students know God, help them grow to be more Christ-like, and show Christ to those in the world around them. Ultimately, our goal is that we would be used by God to work alongside the students' parents to produce disciples of Jesus Christ .
Our students come from a wide range of locations and attend a variety of schools. Our youth ministry draws from areas approximately 30 miles from the church in any direction including more than 20 public/private schools and numerous home-schools.
Junior High Crosstrainers
Our Junior High Crosstrainers ministry primarily consists of Sunday morning Bible lessons and our Wednesday night programming which includes: game times, worship by our student-led worship band, lesson times, and small group Bible studies. We also host an outreach event at least once a month, and a variety of special retreats, events, conferences, as well as an annual summer work camp in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Senior High Ministry
Our Senior High ministry is multi-faceted with students participating in a variety of ministries. The main programming elements include: Sunday morning Bible lessons, Sunday nights (these consist of a rotation of home meetings, outreach activities, service projects, and worship & prayer), a student-led worship band, and a variety of small groups which meet in homes or at the church throughout the week.
Missions & Outreach
Our Senior High students also participate in various mission opportunities within the United States and throughout the world as a part of teams with other youth, adults, or individually.
We are actively involved with multiple para-church organizations within the public schools that minister to our students, as well as the Youth Pastors Network covering the Greater Bloomington/Normal Area.
