Rock Solid Youth (RSY) Teen Ministry

A building is only as good as its foundation. At Shepherd Gate Church, we work hard to create a firm foundation in the lives of our teens, built on the Solid Rock of the Lord Jesus Christ.

RSY teaches our teens to know, grow, and show their faith.

RSY is a group for teens to experience the reality of the living God in an environment where His Spirit is welcome and expected. Our desire is to see the teens of Shepherd Gate grow into a deep, authentic faith that will last their entire lives. We connect teens with peers to share their personal lives and walk with each other. Ultimately, our goal is to see young men and women follow Christ in a way that glorifies God and draws others to Him.


Weekly Meeting: Rock Solid Youth (6th-12th grd.) Meets on Saturday nights 6:30pm at Shepherd Gate Church. Come out for fun, fellowship, games, worship, a short message, and so much more.

RSY Sunday School: Jr. High (6th-8th grd.) & Senior High (9th-12th grd.)  alternate each month meeting on Sunday mornings during the service. Each groups curriculum is tailored to helping each student take ownership of their relationship with Jesus!

Fall Retreat: Every Fall, RSY has a weekend getaway to revive and reflect on our faith.

Special Events: We attend several conferences each year to equip our youth to share the love of Christ with confidence.

Service Projects: We regularly participate in activities to support the church and the local community. We also send teams on short-term international mission trips, typically in the summer.
