Youth Ministry

The AMPED Student Ministry of St. Paul UMC is a ministry specifically designed for students ages 12-18. We are a unique ministry preparing “extreme” disciples to transform the world.

In every endeavor, with the help of our church and friends, we seek to build God’s kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven!
