New Covenant Youth Department

Elder Demetrius A. Chester, Youth Development & Outreach Pastor


Our Youth Church provides spiritual guidance and opportunities for personal growth and development.



The Youth Church will develop programs to provide training in worship procedure and church etiquette. Also, it is to provide activities to assist youth in becoming well-rounded individuals.

Sunshine Band (Ages 11 & Under)

The Sunshine Band serves to help build character through worship and activities during the formative years of children. The Band encompasses children 11 years of age and under.

The Sunshine Band strives to develop wholesome and meaningful programs and activities to inspire enhancement of skills, pride, leadership, self-respect, self-worth and a love for God and His church. It also partners with the home and school to provide a good foundation for each child.

"Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court." 

Psalms 127:3-5

Purity Class (Ages 12 & Up)

The Purity Class provides a wholesome environment for young people 12 – 19 to develop and dedicate their lives to serving God.

The Purity Class develops lessons and activities to enhance the development of our youth into leaders, to help them learn values and standards of good, moral behavior.
