Do you have a testimony of what God has done in your life? We'd love to hear it!

United Nights
(6th - 12th)

This high-energy, power-packed youth service is for every student. Each week on Wednesday night, we come together for loads of fun, dynamic worship, Bible teaching, and prayer. It is our desire that every student would encounter God's presence, grow in their faith, and connect to life-giving relationships.

Level Up Sunday
(6th - 8th)

This JRY service is designed specifically for Junior High students. Every week they will have a blast connecting with other students their age, growing in their understanding of God's Word, and worshiping together in a fun, life-giving environment!

JRY Lifegroups
(9th - 12th)

Life Groups are small gatherings of Senior High students who connect in homes, coffee shops, and restaurants. Each group is led by a trained, faith-filled leader who loves engaging with Senior High students and leading them closer to God. Being a part of a group is a great way to connect with other students and find support and encouragement for your life.

What is James River Youth

James River Youth is the youth ministry of James River Church. We are a community of adventurous, engaging, and encouraging teenagers who love Jesus and love people, all while doing life together. James River Youth consists of a dynamic youth program on Wednesday nights and Sunday Mornings. We are all about helping students realize how amazing Jesus is, creating a life-giving and fun atmosphere, and building community while doing life together.

James River Youth is a brilliant opportunity for students to be in a positive peer environment, to talk about real life issues, and to learn about Jesus in a way that will empower them to live life to the fullest!
