116 Youth Ministry

I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for all who believe… Romans 1:16

116 holds to Christ as its foundation, with a goal to see young people in Faribault and the surrounding cities leading godly lives.  We don’t want to see a bunch of kids just acting nice and being polite; what we want to see is students filled with the power and love of Christ impacting their schools and their cities for Jesus.  We believe everyone needs a savior. His name is Jesus and unless our lives are transformed by His love we are all hopelessly lost.  That’s why at 116 we preach Jesus without apology.  Some people think teens only want games and activities.  We believe teens want something real, something of substance, something to live and die for that’s bigger than they are. Bigger than their lives and the goals of the American dream.  That something is a someone, and He is the only true God, the Creator of the Universe, the Great I Am, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, He is Jesus!  At The River Church and 116 Student Ministries we love God; like a lot!

If you are between 12 and 18 years old and looking for a place to connect with young people who are seeking to know God, 116 is for you!  Our teens meet Wednesday nights at The River Church at 7:00 pm.  You can get connected by contacting Youth Leaders Gabriel and Georgina Crombie. email:  phone: 507-334-1897
