Grace Youth is led by Derek and Alexis Hamblen, who have been at Grace Church since 2009. Their heart and vision for the youth is infectious and shows in how much time and effort they put into every Youth service. 

“Our heart for the youth in our church is for them to establish a consistent, authentic, and passionate relationship with Jesus Christ and that they would learn to serve and love people wholeheartedly.

Through worship, prayer, discipleship, games, and outreach, we hope to cultivate a family of young people with authentic faith who will then shine the light of Jesus unashamedly.

We truly believe there is no limit to how God can use the lives of our youth, and we are excited to have the opportunity to see them grow, change, and encounter God in incredible ways.

As 1 Timothy 4:12 says, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity,” we fully believe this is the kind of Godly example our students are capable of setting, we will are serious about encouraging them to settle for nothing less!”
