Faith to Life

Fresh Wind Youth exists to help students discover more in Christ by bringing their faith to life.

Welcome to FWYouth

The pivotal teenage years go by fast (though sometimes it doesn't feel fast enough 😉). While the goal is often to survive these years, FWYouth is here to help students make the most of them. On Sunday nights, students meet up with their friends for live music, practical teaching, games, and activities guided by adult leaders who care about them.

Our mission is for all students to be living our 1 Peter 3:15 by the time they graduate high school:
"but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, ready at any time to give a defense to anyone who ask you for a reason for the hope that is in you." (CSB)
If you're entering 6-12th grade, we want to personally invite you to join us this Sunday @ 6pm! Take a moment to let us know you're coming and we'll prepare a special gift for you when you arrive. 

Join us this Sunday!

FWYouth meets every Sunday @ 6pm.

45155 Telegraph Rd. Elyria, Ohio 44035


Volunteers at FWYouth are trained to create an atmosphere where families can confidently leave their children in a safe environment. Every volunteer is screened with a comprehensive background check, CPR certified, and monitored by members of our security team, as well as security cameras. Don't worry parents - we've got this!


FWYouth is full of teens -- just like you -- who want to connect, belong, explore their faith, and be a part of changing the world. Each Sunday night features live music, a topical message addressing the issues teens are facing every day, games, and... food! In addition to our weekly service, FWY also host a variety of events and trips throughout the year you absolutely won't want to miss.

"I would encourage any teen to at least give FWY one visit because I truly believe that is all it would take to become a regular. It is a newly renovated building and clean establishment with a young youth pastor who is engaged with each child. It is a safe haven where kids can come and be themselves. With fun activities for the kids plus food & drinks, but it is all secondary to knowledgeable, faith based, God centered education your child will receive at FWY. With yearly mission trip opportunities, it is a one of a kind youth ministry that can set your child on a heavenly path!"

- Joe (parent of two FWY students)

"Fresh Wind Youth is an incredible experience where kids like me get to come and worship God, play games, enjoy food and much more! Your preteen/teenager should come to youth group not only so they can learn about God through fun experiences, but also can just take a break from life and socialize with other kids. Its a blast.

- Gavyn (FWY student)

"My kids started attending Fresh Wind Youth in November of 2022, and it has been a tremendous blessing for them and our family. Since attending FWY, my son was called to be a children’s pastor, and my daughter was challenged to dive deeper into God’s Word which has drawn her nearer to Him and given her boldness to share Christ’s love with her school. Whether through their mission’s trip this past June, or through the sermon series and altar calls, or just with the camaraderie of their peers and youth leaders, I’ve seen both of them grow deeper spiritually and personally. Pastor Jared, and his wife Allison, are godly, caring, personable, and fun leaders. It really seems that their calling is truly to bring faith to life in the students’ and in their families. If you are looking for a youth ministry where your kids can discover more in Christ, then I encourage you to check out FWY!"

- Bryce (parent of two FWY students)

“I started attending FWY in November of 2022. I was hesitant at first but at soon as I walked in I felt welcomed. Everyone had a warm expression on their face. Ever since coming I have had a closer relationship with God and I have learned so much more. But as you learn the pastors always make sure that all of us have fun. The try to make everything fun and it is a great environment and it’s a great why to get involved with Christ. I would 100% recommend trying FWY out!”
