YOUTH MINISTRY

A normal Wednesday night service involves food, a game, live worship, and small groups. 


Our vision for youth ministry is that each youth come to: 

1. Know God, 

2. Own their faith, & 

3. Live out their faith. 

We help them do this through: 

1. Teaching God's Word

2. Creating a safe place for them to ask questions, &

3. Helping them find ways to apply God's word to their world. 


We meet every Wednesday night in the main sanctuary from 7 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. 

Karen Bastible

Youth Pastor

Karen has been serving in youth ministry for over 6 years. And has been with Waterhouse Church since 2019. Karen grew up in Amarillo, Texas and there she realized her call to serve in youth ministry. 

If it weren't for her being surrounded by so many amazing youth leaders when she was younger she wouldn't be where she is now. That is why she works hard to place your youth with leaders who care about your students faith.
