About the Episode:
Join us to hear from PCPC’s Ministry Leader of High School, Will Washington as we discuss Gen Z, their exposure to the brokenness of this world because of technology, and how this can affect outside pressures but also their awareness and hunger for truth and mission. Will talks about how this generation will crave mentoring and that what lights kids up is the thought of living on a mission. Our children are really watching where we are anchoring in moments of crisis, doubt, or fear, and we want them to really sense that we are resting in Him being enough. If you are listening to this and you don’t feel you live this way, it’s never too late. One of the most powerful things that children can witness is your own transformation. What happens in the family is so transformational, and that’s how God designed it to be. The relational pursuit of seeking biblical answers with your children is powerful. As Will says in this episode, “The gospel is not what we do; it’s what Jesus has done, and that’s what changes us.”

The PCPC High School Ministry desires to help students connect to Christ and one another, abide in Christ, and extend Christ to the world. Our main opportunities to get connected are our weekly Small Groups, weekly High School Sunday Mornings, monthly Gatherings, and special events. See below for more information on how to get connected, and please let someone on our staff know if we can serve you in any way.
Small Groups are at the heart of our ministry because we believe that discipleship happens best in smaller contexts. They are an opportunity for students to build deep and lasting relationships with leaders and each other while applying Scripture to their lives. Separated by grade and gender, they meet at various times weekly during the school year at host homes. If your student is not currently in a small group and you would like them to join one, there are opportunities for each grade/gender to get connected.
