Peer ministry is about equipping high school and college age youth to serve as companions to their fellow teens during the ups and downs that accompany life.

We cover topics on hospitality, welcoming, asking conversation provoking questions, listening and observation skills. The youth learn about taking care of themselves and others.
I admire all of these youth who are taking another step down that road of service that we are all called to travel. In John 13: 12-15 we hear:
