HTC - Youth Ministry

HTC Youth exists to serve the needs of students from Junior High to Senior High. The desire of our church is to shepherd our Students in the way of Christ, through five specific means:

  • Consistent, faithful Bible teaching
  • Mentoring and discipleship from adult volunteers
  • Lasting, serious relationships from student to student
  • Partnership with the students' parents
  • Service opportunities with students

Saturday Youth Group

Our primary gathering begins with a game to warm everyone up and then moves into a time of Bible teaching that is focused on the Bible and the Student experience. We meet on Saturdays from 6:30–8:30 PM at The Loft (1440 E 57th Street, Chicago IL 60637) 

High-School Hangout (“H20”)

An informal hangout for high-school students follows the Saturday large group gathering. After the junior-high students leave @ 8:30PM, high schoolers are invited to stay until 9:30PM

Discipleship Small Groups (DSGs)

Sunday mornings the Hyde Park and Downtown DSGs meet in small groups led by adult volunteers, the students spend the year reading and discussing books together.

Student Leadership

A chance for older students to develop their hearts for ministry with discipleship projects and adult mentorship. Projects could include teaching at a retreat, co-leading a DSG, or creating an entrepreneurial ministry project. Juniors and seniors in high school are preferred, and must complete an application process.

Fall and Winter Retreats

Twice a year Students are invited to retreat for a few days of fellowship, Bible teaching, music and lots of fun and memory-making. The fall retreat happens during the early weeks of the school year, and the winter retreat usually rolls around in February.  



Summer is the most prime time fun events of the year for HTCY, where we meet for Bible studies, and outings such as beach days, mini-golf, boat rides, and other local activities. It’s a great chance for students to build their relationships with one another, and to have something to look forward to every week.



Our goal for students who professes the name of Christ is to see them on mission within their own community, city, country, and abroad. We seek to cultivate missions with bi-annual trips overseas and city-wide events that help expose our students to missions and creates an identity service learning within HTCY.
