Youth Ministry at Duke Memorial
Welcome to Youth Ministry at Duke Memorial! Our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming place for youth in grades 6-12 to explore and practice Christian living.
OUR YOUTH are active disciples and leaders in our church. They participate in worship, contribute to our mission outside the congregation, and share their lives with each other, their peers, families, and caring adults. We invite you to join us as we explore what it means to live a life of faith.
