Youth

We want to thank our beloved youth pastor, Carrie Turner, for her 18 years of faithful service as our youth minister. She is retiring from youth ministry, and Eli and Sarah Zuck will be our new youth leaders.

Our vision is that the youth of the Columbia Gorge would become passionate, burning lovers of Jesus Christ who would take His love into every area of their lives—home, school, jobs, and the neighborhoods in which they live.

Our Mission:

To equip youth with a biblically based foundation and a love of the Word and the Kingdom of God

To encourage Youth to know who they are in Christ

To help young people experience the Love of the Father

To help young people to take salvation, deliverance, and healing every where they go through prayer ministry, worship, the arts, dreams and visions, the Prophetic, and their giftings and anointings.

We want to take those who are lost, broken, apathetic, or searching, and train, teach and rebuild them in love so they can minister the love of Jesus to a lost and broken world.

Our goal is to create a safe environment where youth can come and learn who God is and how much He loves them.

We want to teach a foundation of faith based upon scripture as well as encounters with the love of Father God that will propel young people into their destinies in Jesus.

We believe that they will only find their true purpose and fulfillment inside a relationship with the loving God we serve. We purposefully teach about the gifts of the Holy Spirit; that those gifts are absolutely vital in a Christian’s journey today.

We follow Christ’s model of prayer, faith, love and ministry.

We are committed to strengthening the young people in our community and affecting the world in a positive way. We want to bring Heaven to Earth in our region.

We meet at the Hood River Vineyard youth building located across from the Children’s Park on the corner of 9th and Eugene Streets.
