What is REaLIFE
Realife is the youth ministry of Journey Life Church. We are a community of adventurous, engaging, and encouraging teenagers who love Jesus and love people. Realife consists of a dynamic youth program on Wednesday nights for 6th-12th grade students to encounter God. We are all about helping students realize how amazing Jesus is, creating a life-giving and fun atmosphere, and building community while doing life together in small groups.
Realife Student Ministries is a brilliant opportunity for students to be in a positive peer environment, to talk about real life issues, and to learn about Jesus in a way that will empower them to live life to the fullest.
