YTH High School

YTH is the High School Ministry at Crossroads.  At YTH, we believe that no one should do life alone.  We are here to come alongside you, answer your questions, build new friendships, and ultimately grow in your faith.  We are ONE.

At YTH we believe that Every Empty Seat Matters.

We encourage all of our high school students to join us on Wednesday nights for our YTH service at our Newburgh Campus, and bring your friends!  This is a time of worship and community.  Doors open at 6:30 PM and service starts at 7:00 PM in the Student Theater.

We also believe that Groups Are Where We Grow.

Groups are a way to break out from the large group setting of a YTH weekly gathering into a smaller setting. Our desire is for these Groups to allow even stronger relationships to be formed through accountability, Bible study, and mentoring.

The third tenet at Crossroads YTH is:  Saved People Serve People.

Serving is a great way for our youth to get connected in the life of the church as well as develop leadership skills for the future.  There are serving opportunities available during our YTH services, and across our church campuses.

    YTH West Campus
    High School and Middle School
    Sundays at 6:00 PM


    Sundays, 6:00 PM, West Campus.
    For most of us, middle and high school were some of the most challenging years we faced. Discovering who your real friends were, figuring out where you fit in, and who you were as a person were daunting tasks. We’re here to walk alongside your family through these formative years, as we help students understand who they are, and most importantly who they are in Christ.  Join us for a time designed just for you!

    YTH Summer Camp
    (entering Grades 9-12)
    Camp Illiana, Washington, Indiana
    June 17-21

    Camp will definitely be the BEST WEEK of the summer!! YTH Camp is for students entering Grades 9-12. The week is designed for students to connect with God in a new way. We believe students will make connections that will become life-long friendships, they will make memories that will last a lifetime, and they will find mentors who will guide them through their seasons.

    Students will experience worship services, small group discussions, out of the box camp challenges, and fun late-night activities.

    Students will pick a TRIBE during registration. They will participate in camp challenges each day and TEAM SPIRIT makes all the difference! We encourage students to bring and wear their Tribe’s color during these challenges each day. This year’s TRIBE COLORS are: Pink, Yellow, Green, and Blue.

    Online registration will open February 15, registration deadline is May 31 or until the event is full.

    More information can be found here.

    Click on the register button below, choose "YTH High School", click "Female or Male Camper", click "Add To Cart".  You can register multiple students at one time, choose the appropriate camp based on age group, repeat the steps, then click continue.


    Please email Sara Kirkland if you have any questions.
