Living Water Youth is our Junior High & High School ministry here at Living Water. Our mission is to love, connect, and empower the next generation to be all that Jesus has called them to be. Our hope is to be able to affirm every student of who they are in Jesus and mobilize them to be a force for the Kingdom of God in their city, their schools, and their home.

City Groups


City Groups are groups of High School and Junior High students who meet in homes around the city. These groups include food, connection, Bible reading, and praying for each other. They’re structured around students learning how understand the Bible for themselves, and apply the Gospel to their lives as they fight for what God is doing in their community.

City Groups provide a more natural setting outside of the church walls where kids can grow in their relationship with God, each other and with leaders/mentors. GU Sunday Night Services are a great time of worship and teaching, but it’s hard to be personal with hundreds of kids in one evening. Students typically have a difficult time going deep or being vulnerable when a boy or girl they like is sitting across the room. City Groups allow students to grow alongside of their leader and peers in a place way more familiar, a home.

City Groups are meeting in homes every other Wednesday evening!

Call one of our City Group leaders today to get connected!
