Whether your child is a preschooler, a high schooler, or anywhere in between, we love what is going on here at the Salvation Army with the youth. We have 2 Youth pastors who love getting to know your child and we offer a variety of age specific fun, God-centred programs to keep them in great peer relationships and growing in their relationship with God. All our programs aim to teach young people, age appropriately, about the fundamentals of Christian faith, what it means to be a Christian, how we live that out in our daily life and what it means to be a Christian in The Salvation Army.
