We believe that God desires 417Youth to be a ministry that is focused on wholeness, community, and discipleship as well as focused on the area (the 417) that God has placed us in. Students are encouraged  to take part in one of several journaling groups that meet throughout Springfield and surrounding areas at various days of the week. These groups help to encourage more in-depth bible discussions, help them to understand their relationship and their faith, and grow in their relationship with God to a deeper level.

417Youth will also take part in what is known as “Serve 417” throughout the year which will be opportunities to serve the community and be the tangible hands and feet of Jesus.
