Welcome to Youth!
We have an awesome group of young people who are dedicated to loving and serving our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and committed to sharing His good news to our community. The Mission Statement of Rocky Mount is "Transforming religion into relationships one person at a time." As the youth ministry of Rocky Mount, we strive to fulfill this Mission Statement as we live out the Great Commission:
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." -Matthew 28:18-20

What is Youth?
As the youth ministry of Rocky Mount United Methodist Church, we are dedicated to helping our high school and middle school students grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We desire to give each student the tools to pursue a life of godliness and to fulfill the great comission:
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Our passion is to see the love of God become contagious among our students, their friends, and their families.
Who is Youth?
Youth is, first and foremost, made up of the high school and middle school students of Rocky Mount UMC. Many of these students serve the youth ministry, and in Rocky Mount, through worship ministries and as part of the student leadership team. In addition, there are also a number of dedicated parents and adult leaders who devote time each week to help make our weekly meetings possible
Steve Goatley is the youth pastor of Contagious Youth Ministry. He and his wife, Wendy, came to Rocky Mount five years ago and have helped the youth ministry grow by giving students a safe place to come and experience the love of Christ. Since his arrival in Mooresville, Steve has become involved with more than just the youth ministry:
As a talented worship leader, Steve helps out with the worship ministries at Rocky Mount. He has developed a passion for helping young musicians and singers learn to lead worship, helping many of our kids use their talents in worship ministries at Rocky Mount and beyond.
