Youth Ministry.

Pastor Tom Vandermeid

Skyler Retzlaff, Youth Director

The Broadway Youth Ministry exists to courageously lead students in becoming life long followers of Jesus Christ by being Hope and Life in our city, schools, neighborhoods and families.

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to[a] his own glory and excellence,by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature. For this very reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these things are yours and abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

— 2 Peter 1:3-8

The Ministry welcomes those who hear God’s calling to join in this mission. For information, please call the church office at 815-399-3296

Who We Are

Middle school and high school students gather often to have fun, worship, open the word and grow together in faith. Come join us, bring some friends and see what God is doing at Broadway.

Sunday School

Students gather each Sunday at 9 a.m. during the school year. Bring your Bible and your best, toughest questions. Learn, grow and hang out. And then stick around for worship at 10:15 a.m.

Skills Camp

Every summer Broadway welcomes dozens of kids to a week-long Bible, sports and skills camp. Youth serve as counselors, along with plenty of brace and cool adults. It’s a time to give back and pass on to younger students what you have learned about God.
