O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.”   Psalm 71:17

Brian's Notes

January was another active and full month for our Youth Ministry. We welcomed the New Year together with la ock-in on December 29th. It was everything a lock-in should be: too much sugar and very little sleep. We officially began our new calendar with a Youth Fellowship & Teaching Night on the 14th. It was well-attended, and as always, made possible by the many volunteers who give their time and energy to our program. The following week we were the fortunate guests at the Mignerey’s. We enjoyed a beautiful evening with bonfires, hotdogs and smores, and a devotional given by Ms. Carol Powell. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this event, especially to our gracious hosts! The youth group went in different directions on the 28th. The Mid. Highs went rock climbing, while the Sr. Highs enjoyed a night of bowling. Another busy month, but we saw great participation in all our activities and continue to see growth among our group.

Please note the upcoming events in February:

  • 4-Feb. Super Bowl Parties. The Sr. Highs will be hosted by the Webb family (4170 Tronjo), and the Mid. Highs will be hosted by the Hendrix family (2451 Semur Road).
  • 11-Feb. Valentines Luncheon. Please check your email for details from Colette Obray.
  • 18-Feb. Returning from a weekend at Dogwood Acres (Dogwood Youth Conference).
  • 25-Feb. Rummage Sale Setup Begins!

For those attending the Mission Trip, please be on the lookout for a forthcoming email from me about scheduling our pre-trip classes. Our trip coordinator, Leader Treks, asks us to do four sessions that help prepare our group for what we will encounter this summer. These are roughly hour-long sessions.

Also, please attend a Listening Session when Ministry Architects is here the first week of February (5th – 7th). This is a wonderful opportunity for you to share your thoughts, dreams, and insights. There is a Listening Group specifically for youth and their parents on February 5th from 7:00-8:00 PM. Ministry Architects is excited to hear from you, so please make a special effort to attend.

Again, thank you to everyone who prays for the youth of this church, and each person who contributes to the life of our program.

Grace & Peace,


Montreat Youth Conference 2017

I thought it would be near impossible for Montreat to live up to all the hype. Everyone, from Pastor Hugh to countless members, sang the praises of this North Carolina paradise and promised that I would love it as soon as I passed through the iconic stone archway. Well, everyone was right! As many of you know, Montreat, in a quiet but powerful way, brings you closer to God and reminds you of the amazing ways that God works in our lives. What a blessing to start my time at Trinity in Montreat! Read More
Mid High Mystery 2017

The Mid-Highs recently returned from their Mystery Trip. They left on June 2 and headed to Atlanta where they spent a fun filled day at Six Flags. Thanks to the Trawick family, they continued on to Highlands, NC where they stayed in their mountain home and enjoyed hiking, beautiful waterfalls, white water rafting and zip lining. The Mid High Group returned to Pensacola on June 8. The theme of the trip and scripture study each day was "I Can" with a emphasis on stepping out and doing things through our Christ who gives us strength. There were 21 who attended in all: 16 youth and 5 adult chaperones.  Thank you to all for your prayers!

Our goal is to provide a creative, youth friendly space where youth will learn to live the life God desires for them. Read More
