Create an inclusive, connected, nonjudgmental and supportive space for all
Life lesson application to keep faith and spirituality relevant
Invest time to develop relationships rooted in trust and sharing of our lives
Find ways to involve youth to participate and share their voice in the larger ministry of the church
