Young Adults Ministry @ ORCN

Ministry Verse:

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 12.2

 College Ministry Philosophy:

Catalyst is the young adult ministry group of Orchard Ridge’s church body. It consists of individuals aged 18 to 25 years, who want to grow in their faith and have fellowship with other Christians. Catalyst strives to encourage our young adults as they transition into this new chapter, from youth to adulthood, as they seek God’s will for their lives, strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ, and learn how to walk in His way.


Overall College Ministry Program:

  • Love the young adults and build relationships with them through:
    • Weekly meetings and special events
    • Texting, Facebook and other social media, phone calls, hang out sessions
    • Attending activities in which they are involved (sporting event, community service project, work event, etc)
  • Conduct a weekly meeting consisting of a meal, worship, Biblical lesson with discussion, and prayer. (2 hour session each week)
  • Provide two large events each year so that young adults have an opportunity to grow in their faith, and get away from their everyday routine and environment. One of the events will be outreached focused so that participants can invite friends.
  • Encourage young adults to be a part of the overall Orchard Ridge church body as they are transitioning into their adult faith.
    • Encourage young adults to attend service weekly to grow in their faith and connect with a bigger community of faith
    • Help to build connections between young adults and adult mentors within the congregation
    • Help show volunteer ministry opportunities that would be of interest to young adults or that they would do well in with their gifts
