Peer Ministry Leadership
@ St. Andrews

What is Peer Ministry? 
* Youth learn to love like Jesus.  
* Youth become equipped in the people skills necessary to be a caring and welcome friend.  
* Youth expand and deepen their personal faith through developing the servant hearts.
* Youth learn living skills for situations that occur in their every day and every where! 
* Youth learn to be a bridge of resource to those in need.
 
Our 2019 Peer Ministry Training is complete. Be watching for more info about our next training! 
 
Upcoming Fundraisers! 
At St. Andrew’s we want our youth to be able to raise money for the trips and events we offer.  If you are connected with one of the many forms of communication above, Nikki will keep reminding you when an opportunity comes up! 🙂
 
Due to the current COVID-19 isolation necessities, our planned fundraisers are suspended but when we are able, we will do our best to reschedule the events and opportunities to earn.
