Choosing to live your life for God starts with devoting your time to Him and letting your plans be used for a greater purpose. The Hillsboro Youth ministry exists to help guide middle school and high school students through very important life stages. Through a positive and welcoming environment, students are able to explore their faith and build community while personally growing with God.
