Partners on the Journey
Chapel Hill family - we have many opportunities to join with our youth! We are blessed by your gifts in biblical scholarship and understanding the language of teens. All we need to be complete is the love you have to share! Check out the Voice, Weekly Email, Facebook & Twitter for ways you can partner in youth ministry.

Pay it Forward
Your stewardship and continued gifts of service, talent, and monetary support allow our youth to concentrate on paying forward their talents instead of focusing on fundraising. Thanks for helping our youth learn to give without the need to have immediate, personal gain! Each youth who receives scholarship funding participates in diverse service opportunities. To pay it forward please go here.
