Youth Ministries

We Love We Play We Serve We Learn

Who we are…

BPC’s Youth Ministries strive to come alongside parents within the community of BPC as they raise their teens in the ways of the Lord, for the sake of the youth in Chico, CA. Because parents are the primary influencers of their children’s faith as they grow and mature into adult followers of Jesus Christ (even in the teenage years), our team desires to partner with parents as they continue to raise and disciple their teens.
