Many teens in today’s media-centered society, where immediate fulfillment is the standard, find it difficult or un-fulfilling to participate in a traditional church service, but that shouldn’t hinder their search for or relationship with Jesus Christ. At Waterloo Baptist Church, we offer a teen-focused service for youth ages 12 to 19, with more contemporary music and messages that are focused on the issues that most teens struggle with.
Teen Church is held in the downstairs Whitbeck Chapel of Waterloo Baptist Church at the same time as the Morning Worship service is held upstairs. Occasionally the Teens join the service upstairs.
Shannon Young, our Youth Pastor, is a recent graduate of North Star Bible Institute in Greece, NY. He is an energetic, enthusiastic and dynamic preacher, whom the youth can relate to, and who can relate to the youth and what they are going through. Shannon, his wife Jen (who teaches one of our Children’s Church classes, as well as assists with the teens) and their four children travel weekly from Brockport, NY to participate in our services.
