Youth Ministry

Fun. Faith. Family.

Welcome to NRUMC Youth Ministry!

It’s our goal to provide a safe and accepting space for students to learn and practice true discipleship, while also giving students ownership and opportunities to develop leadership. Our Youth Ministry strives to help students understand what it means to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. Through small groups, bible study, retreats, and other events and churchwide connections, we help students create authentic relationships with one another, put their faith in action, and seek to be more like Jesus Christ every day.


For questions, contact Jen Haselden.  You can reach her at or call our church office at 919-847-1536 x113.

Youth Parent Information

Parents, we are here to support you as you encourage your youth on their faith journey. We believe that the bulk of discipleship occurs at home, and research tells us that one of the most influential things you can do to develop a young person’s faith long term is to attend worship together.  So we encourage you to make the most of those conversations around the dinner table, on the car ride to school, in the small moments around the house. Talk with their students about your own beliefs, your own spiritual disciplines, and other experiences involving your own faith journey. And be in worship together as often as you can. 

We have a new modern worship service held once a month in the youth building! Join us for our next Sunday Evening Worship service at 7:00p.m.  The upcoming dates are February 26, March 19, April 23, and May 21.  




We pray for and with students, and teach spiritual practices that build their faith.


We worship together through creative arts, music ensembles, and monthly worship gatherings.


We prioritize intentional fun by playing games that build community. We encourage authentic relationships through weekly small groups and weekend retreats.


We participate together in local service projects, summer mission trips, and churchwide missions.


We intentionally place adult ministry leaders who guide and support our students on their journey.

Join us @ Student Breakfast Club!

We meet Sundays: 9:45-10:45 a.m. in the Youth Center. Our Student Breakfast Club is designed to teach Bible basics and help students grow together in their knowledge and faith in Jesus Christ while enjoying a delicious meal together!
