All students grades 6 – 12 are invited to be a part of the awesome community that is the Youth Ministry of Peachtree Road. No matter where you are in your journey, there is a place for you here! Building relationships is at the heart of our ministry and our mission. We believe young people need support in understanding and pursuing their identity, belonging, and purpose, and we are eager to walk alongside them every step of the way. We have an incredible team of volunteer small group leaders who are committed to modeling Jesus by walking with students in their daily lives and faith journeys. We hope to engage, equip, and energize youth and their families for lifelong discipleship and mission – challenging them to live fully in faith, anchored in scripture, and steeped in the love of Christ. Come and see what we’re all about!

Volunteers make the youth ministry at PRUMC happen. We count on our families to look for ways to “plug in” and volunteer. Here are some of the ways you can serve.
Shepherds are the foundation of the youth ministry at PRUMC. Shepherds are adults that love Jesus and love youth and will guide our youth along their discipleship process. Shepherds guide a small group of youth, meeting with them as a group once a week and keeping up with them throughout the year. It is a one-year commitment and our shepherds are also encouraged to join us for special events and retreats.Text
Foundations teachers help teach our Sunday morning gatherings. There are regular teaching opportunities as well as substitute opportunities available.
Prayer & Care Team
This team focuses on the hearts of our youth and families. They commit to praying regularly for youth and families in need. They also focus on surrounding our leaders and volunteers in prayer. The prayer/care team helps to facilitate and host an event per semester to help guide our families through shared cultural pressures (anxiety, social media, adolescent development, etc.).
Our host teams help set up the lobby and lounge on Sunday mornings and Sunday evenings and greet youth as they gather and check in.
This team helps plan special events throughout the year, including Halloween Extravaganza, Christmas Parties, special 1|99 nights and other events.
Our environment team focuses on helping shape our physical environment for worship to follow our teaching themes. Part of the team also focuses throughout the Harp Center so that our space tells our story.
CHOA: Strong 4 Life
