Our Vision

At Living Hope, we desire to make disciples out of the students God brings to us by impacting them and their families with biblical truth. Studies by the Barna Group and Lifeway reveal that 60-70% of students will leave church in their 20's, and only half may return. We want to see this statistic changed by challenging the students to understand and take ownership of their faith. We know that when our students are out loving God and others, and making disciples, that we are doing our job.

Youth School of Discipleship

Sunday morning, January 22nd at 9:30 the youth will be starting their own School of Discipleship. We are starting a 75 week study using a LifeWay curriculum called Elements. It's going to be a great study that looks at twenty-five different topics from three different angles, helping us get a fuller understanding of God’s word. Don't let your youth miss out on this.

What is SIX05?

SIX05 meets on SUNDAY nights at 6:05 p.m. (Be sure to check out our website calendar for holiday, spring break, and summer schedule changes.) Deuteronomy 6:5: "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might." After God miraculously and graciously set the Nation of Israel free from Egypt, He gave them commands for living that started and are to be motivated by love for Him. Bondage is a horrible thing, so being freed by a God who loved and cared for them was something they needed to remember. Do you know that God loves you?
SIX05 is about worship, evangelism, equipping and, helping youth to experience the love of God, to live it out and to help others come to know God’s love in Jesus Christ too. We desire to develop a community of youth who are growing in love with God, while giving them an exciting and safe event to invite their friends to hear about Jesus. The Gospel is a common theme in our Sunday night teachings. Believers will also be challenged and edified by the practical applications of the lessons as well. We desire to equip students to confront culture with the love of and for God in Christ. His love experienced must be expressed on our campuses, teams, in relationships and families because He is the greatest love not only today but for eternity!
Parents: Please prioritize Sunday nights in your junior high and high schools student’s schedule and then support their efforts in their various relationships as well.

The Youth Culture Report

Youth Culture Headlines

One year ago I came on as the full time youth pastor and to be honest as much as I thought I would be helping the youth grow in their relationship with God, it has been a time of growth and change for me. We have an amazing group of young men and women in our youth group. They often amaze me with their insight and understanding. Occasionally they astound me with how silly they can be as well which makes it pretty fitting that I get to be with them all the time. I can honestly say this has been one of the greatest decisions of my life. Thank you for the opportunity to do what I am doing and be a part of yours and your youth’s lives.

Over the summer we have many events that will be fun and challenge the youth to serve and grow in the Lord. These events are not put on the calendar randomly; each is designed to help them grow. Please try to have your youth attend each of these opportunities. As always I look forward to working with you and your youth; if there are any events going on in their lives I would love to know so I can be a part of them. - Howard

    How do I get plugged in?

    Volunteers: We need you! We need people of all ages who have a passion to see God move among the youth in the Brazos Valley. Some have already been trained and gone through the background check and some need to do that. Good! Contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it today, because you are vital in what God is doing to call youth to live from the overflow of His unfailing love.

    Why Youth Ministry?

    There is no doubt that it is every parent's responsibility to train their child to know and fear the Lord. Knowing this, we see youth ministry as family ministry. We do not desire to take the place of the parent as the primary influencer of their child, but we do want to join with them as they raise their child. We exist to be a resource and encouragement for parents. Our goal is to see the next generation be the church now; in their homes, schools and other spheres of influence.
