Saltshaker Youth Ministry

Our purpose is to call students to a relationship with Jesus, disciple them in the Word of God, help them develop Christ-centered relationships, and equip them to reach their world.

Our youth group name, The Saltshakers, comes from Matthew 5:13, where Jesus is talking to His disciples and He says, "you are the salt of the earth."

At Saltshaker Youth Ministry we want to use every opportunity to be salt, a taste of God, to the world around us.
