Montreat affirms youth and young adults in their calling to be and to shape the church of today and tomorrow. Throughout the year, we have events for every stage in a young person’s life. From the very earliest years of a child's life, through middle school and high school youth, to young adults, our desire is to help them come to know and believe that they are the beloved of God. Opportunities to grow in leadership and understanding of mission are cornerstones of Montreat’s youth ministry program.

We strive to be a place where authenticity, community, connection, and God's truth thrive. We seek to be an inclusive place where each voice can be heard and where each heart can be molded; where change is invited, challenge is expected, and where all are embraced.
