A new name for the new year!
MAV YTH is a gathering of students from 6th-12th grade who have decided that we don't want to fit in with the crowd. Why try so hard to fit in when we were born to stand out? We have committed to being a generation that doesn't just go with the flow, but to intentionally be mavericks with a cause. We gather to stand out, together. We are ready to love and empower the youth to live up to their potential for they are the next generation of leaders. MAV YTH is a safe place for students to gather and seek God together no matter where they've been.
EVERY SUNDAY AT 6:30PM.
MAV is short for the word Maverick which means, an unorthodox or independent-minded person.
There are so many unspoken traditions and norms the world lives by. Our goal at MAV YTH is to help students understand they don't need to fit in the world and do life the way they do. Mavericks think independently from the world because we are connected to the God of creation. He is the one who allows us to think and live differently than the world. We learn from Paul as he is writing to the church of Rome, not only are we not supposed to follow the pattern of this world, but actually are supposed to have a new thought life. We become renewed with a new way of thinking and living. MAV YTH are youth who understand we are set apart from the world by God.
"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 (NIV)
For students to know and understand they are born to be different from the world.
We are excited to announce The MAV LIFE Podcast!
Walking out in our calling to stand out and think differently than the world can be difficult at times. In a world where there is constant social media influencers and trends at our finger tips, we need to be reminded that we are called to be different and impact those around us. Tap in if you want encouragement on how to be a MAV.
This podcast will begin in sometime 2022 and will be available on-site or on Apple Podcasts.

Our staff CREW is our adult volunteer team. This team helps by interacting with and mentoring our youth. Often times we will have groups or events where we need extra adult supervision and leadership. To become a CREW member, we ask our volunteers to attend church at ABC, become or commit to becoming a member and fill out an application for background check.
To apply, reach out to Pastor Sean with the button below.
The student CREW team is made up of volunteer students who have decided to take an extra step in their faith. This team is responsible for helping run our youth services and events. At our youth nights we have a sign-in booth, food bar, and media elements that require volunteers. Each student who wants become a part of the team goes through a group called "MINER LEAGUE" which teaches some foundational aspects of faith. Students write a short two-page essay and take a test and upon completion will graduate on a youth night, receiving a certificate of completion. They will then be asked if they want to join the CREW team.
"MINER LEAGUE" is offered in-sync with ABC's Lifegroup sessions. The next session should begin sometime Feb 2022.
Hang tight while we look up scheduled events...
