Teens are important to us.
Our teens (ages 13-18) experience a safe and life-giving environment where they learn about Jesus through creative, age-appropriate and relevant Bible teaching, ultimately guiding them to become passionately devoted followers of Jesus.
The goal of Project 4:Twelve is to create opportunities for students to truly know God, find freedom from their past, discover the purpose God has for their life, and ultimately make a difference in their school, community and world.
At Project 4:Twelve, students are excited to hear the word of God. They are challenged by its truth and encouraged by leaders and peers in their daily walk with Christ. Whether new to church or seeking additional opportunities to go deeper in a relationship with God, Project 4:Twelve is the perfect ministry for all teens!
Why Project 4:Twelve?
Probably the most asked question we get is, "What does Project 4:Twelve mean?" We came up with the name when reading 1 Timothy 4:12 which says, "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set and example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity." What a great foundational verse for a vibrant student ministry!
4:TWELVE - LifeGroups
Here at Project 4:Twelve we believe that true life change happens in circles and not in rows! Therefore, we meet in small groups that we call "LifeGroups" the first three weeks of each month. LifeGroups are divided up into Junior High (7th & 8th Grade) and Senior High (9th & 12th). The goal of our LifeGroups is to grow in both our relationship with God, as well as our relationships with one another. We study God's Word in a very fun and interactive way, while also building relationships through group trips and various activities throughout the year.

Meet our Student Pastor.
Josh Johnson joined the New Song staff in 2014 as the Student Pastor. He and his wife Mallorie were married in 2011 and have 2 fantastic children, Graeme (6) and Rylee (4). Needless to say, they stay busy!
Together, they have a strong devotion to the Lord, a sincere love for teenagers, and a dedication to leading them on a journey to Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose and Make a Difference. Pastor Josh has a great sense of humor and a very engaging communication style. If you're lucky you may even catch Josh doing one of his many impressions, LOL!
