OCYG Middle School Ministry

David Knox - Middle School Minister


“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God — this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:1-2

Otter Creek has ALWAYS placed the highest priority on its youth and this is nowhere more evident than with the OCYG (Otter Creek Youth Group). For decades, this ministry has provided families & teenagers with focussed, inter-generational, and Biblical opportunities to mature and grow. By hiring a Middle School Youth Minister in 2011 and to better meet the changing needs of Otter Creek families and students, the OCYG began operating as two separate groups: the Middle School & High School ministries.

The Mission of the OCYG is to partner with parents in the process of developing mature disciples of Christ through Worship, Community, and Service. In this ministry, you will experience relevant Bible teaching, mission trips, summer camp, retreats, opportunities to lead & serve, small groups & mentoring relationships.

Middle School can be an incredibly challenging life stage, and the OCYG middle school ministry exists to offer a home and a place of belonging to OC students as they encounter life change together.

How to Get Involved

There are several ways for a middle school student to get involved in our ministry: Shoot me an e-mail or text! Or, just show up for class on a Sunday morning - we LOVE to meet new people! If you know a current OCYG’er, just ask them to tell you more about our Covenant Group Ministry (when, where, etc.) Are you an interested parent? Give me a call or give us your e-mail ( ) in order to receive weekly ministry updates.
