Uprising Youth Ministry is for students in 6th through 12th grade. We are a multi-site student ministry that gathers weekly with students from across NCC's eight locations both in DC and Northern Virginia. We offer four weekly gatherings in DC, NoVA, Ballston and Gainesville. Our weekly gatherings consist of worship led by our NCC worship team and a ted-style message that initiates discussions in our middle school and high school small groups that meet onsite. We have incredible leaders that have committed for the entire school year to invest in your kids. They have gone through training, a background check, application process and interview and we are confident in their ability to support both students and their families.
We also have special events and retreats throughout the year. If you would like to receive Uprising-related emails, please subscribe here: ncc.gd/uprisingemail
In Uprising, we value and encourage our students to have intimacy with God, community with believers and influence in their worlds. Our greatest goal is that each student who gets involved with Uprising will develop a strong faith foundation and have a personal relationship with Jesus. Our gatherings are designed to intentionally invest in our youth and encourage them to explore their faith in the context of their daily lives.
We believe that it is important for teenagers to engage and be a part of the body of Christ, so we encourage our youth to be involved in church-wide events rather than having many separate youth events. We join in NCC's 2nd Saturday Serve initiative and have our students attend the regular church service. We also join A1:8 Missions Trips so that students can build relationships with one another and adults in the church.
At Uprising, it is our priority to make sure that students are engaging in their worlds and being positive influencers to others around them. God has wired them specifically with the circle of friends and influences that they have. We aim to equip, support, encourage and build them up so that they can engage in their environments at school and at home throughout each week.
