Our Mission & Core Values


The mission of CP Youth is to help young people become disciples of Jesus who connect with God, with others, with ministry, and the world.

  • Connect with God for His praise and worship, and growth in knowledge and understanding of his character and mission.
  • Connect with Others in the body of Christ in safe, trusting, and loving relationships
  • Connect with Ministry for opportunities to discover, develop and use their gifts for God’s praise and Kingdom growth.
  • Connect with the World to see the hope of Jesus taken to the end of the earth through students who are being transformed by His Spirit.
