Thrive Youth Group

Youth Group meets every Sunday Morning at 10:00 and Wednesday night at 6:30 PM in the Youth Center, The Root, in the Annex building.

If you are in 6th - 12th grade come and join us.

Here at Portland Nazarene, we recognize that it is your teens that are the foundation and future of who we are as the Body of Christ. Thrive is designed not only to welcome your teen into a cohesive family unit, but to welcome them as they are and where they are in life; no strings attached. 


We believe that if your child has the desire to join us in the Kingdom work, it should be under their own volition and so, if they so choose, we offer opportunities to deepen their relationship with Christ and the community though:


- In-depth Bible study and practical application as a group

- Monthly “Cohesion Events”

- Service opportunities within the church

- Service opportunities within the community

- Mentorship with congregation members



If you have any questions pertaining to our youth program, do not hesitate to contact our Youth Minister, Keegan Reckinger, 

through his email (keegan@portlandnazarene. com). 

If your teen has a desire to join the family but has transportation needs, please reach out and the church will facilitate.

THRIVE IS AN ENVIRONMENT DESIGNED WITH THE NEEDS OF YOUR YOUTH IN THE FOREGROUND OF OUR MINDS.
