Below you will find links to the various ministries at YTBC. Explore these links to learn more.
At YTBC, we love kids! We love families! We make the care and security of these sweet little ones our top priority.
We have "bed babies," "1s & 2s," and "3s & 4s." There is a security check in and safety procedures that ensure the well being of all children.
Young.Life is the ministry for 18-20somethings. This ministry is rooted in the Sunday morning Life Group and provides opportunities to serve in the church. There are various events/activities/outings that are possible for those who are involved.
YT Kids encompasses birth through 6th grade at YT. It is our desire that YT Kids provides a fun, safe, and learning environment for kids to come to know Jesus! We go to extremes to make sure that kids are truly loved and cared for by responsible adults, taught the Bible creatively, and have a great time at church!
At YTBC we have adult ministries that involve Life Groups and men's and women's activities. Adults have the opportunity to get involved by serving in the church and by doing outreach in the community. We encourage all adults to make a difference at home, at church, and in the community!
The student ministry is called YT Students. We want the ministry to 7th-12th graders to be a time of challenge and growth as they discover who God has made them to be! There are weekly student worship services, Life Groups, and events, to keep students engaged.
We love our senior adults at YTBC! There is a monthly meeting for fellowship and food called "Abundant Lifers." This ministry is for anyone over the age of 55 (and will admit it!) We would love for you to check out this group of fun loving and caring seniors!
