Youth Ministry

Explore the ministry opportunities for Teens at St. James Community Church.

Next Generation Youth Group

Next Generation is a dynamic youth group for teens aged 14-18. Youth from a variety of denominations join with the youth from St. James Community Church, creating a diverse community for young believers to grow in their relationship with Christ.

The youth group goes on an annual mission trip to New Orleans where friends serve alongside each other to share Christ’s love and serve members of the community. The fun events Next Generation regularly hosts will have your teen begging to invite a friend to church.


Meet our Youth Team

Youth Leaders Darryl and Julie Oddo have been directing Next Generation Youth Group for over ten years. In that time, we have seen youth grow closer to Christ and develop a heart for service. Together they have one son, and serve in the Men's and Women's Ministries.

1 Timothy 4:12 "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."
