All Saints Youth Ministry exists to form a community of families in Austin, TX that embraces God’s story, celebrates God’s kingdom, participates in God’s Church, and loves God’s world.
All Saints believes that Christian maturity involves a reorientation of our whole selves: our minds and bodies; our sports and schoolwork; our words and actions; our calendars; our life in the home and outside of it.
It is our hope that in the seven years they are with us, students will grow in all these ways and that they will do so together - learning Christ by seeing his image in one another and by seeking the unity for which he prayed and died.
"And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." - Acts 2:42
Christianity is about relationships. That's why Christians have always met together, learned together, and prayed together. So every Sunday night, All Saints students meet to study God's word, eat snacks, play, and pray. We reflect on what God has done in Christ, and send one another out into the week to come.
Whether you've been in the church all of your life, or never at all, we hope you'll come.

"Where Your Treasure Is, There Your Heart Will Be Also": Tracing the Gospel Through Harry Potter
Albus Dumbledore chose these words from Matthew 6 to go on his mother and sister's tombstone--and in many ways, they tell the story of Harry Potter! Come join us as we listen for echoes of Scripture in Harry Potter: the biblical understanding of sin, sacrificial love, resurrection, friendship, good and evil, and more! In the meantime, we'll be learning how to view all art, culture, and life through the lens of the Gospel.
*if you don’t yet know the Harry Potter story, take some time this Christmas break to read the books and / or watch the movies!*
Middle School Sunday School - Spring 2019
"King David: God's Unlikely Champion"
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together...but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." - Hebrews 10:24-26
Small Groups give students the time to connect with God and one another in a more intimate setting. The goal is for students to learn more about God and themselves. The two go hand in hand! As students learn more about who God is and what he's done in Christ, we pray that they'll have the safety, vulnerability and curiosity to explore who God has made them to be and what God is doing in their own lives.
ATX Conference: Fri PM 2/15 - Sat PM 2/16
But what is ATX?
ATX- Student Weekend is a D-NOW style weekend where students stay in host homes and gather together for worship, biblical teaching, crazy amounts of fun, and more. Our desire is that students would encounter Jesus in a whole new way and begin living on mission in their schools, on their sports team and in the city of Austin. It's going to be an EPIC weekend that your student won't want to miss.
“The best social predictor of what a teenager’s religious life will look like is to ask what her parents’ religious lives look like.” (Kenda Creasy Dean)
The All Saints Youth Ministry thrives with sustained and consistent support not just from pastoral staff, but also from parents. Youth ministry is family ministry! To that end, there are many ways to volunteer in the youth ministry.
o Level one: come to Youth Group (middle or high school) once a semester, talk to kids, and help lead discussion groups.
o Level two: come to Youth Group (middle or high school) once a month, talk to kids, and help lead discussion groups.
o Level three: lead a small group of 6-10 male or female students once a week.
