“I Didn’t Know Church Could Be Like This!”

Elevate is for you, if you are:

- In middle school
- In high school
- 12 to 19 years old
- Red, yellow, black, white (or any combination)!
- Male or female
- Maybe you’re not really into the “church” thing. That’s okay, too.....

Just come and check it out

Elevate is unique!

We believe in living out the Word of God but also in breaking most of the other traditional and religious mind-sets associated with church. Chances are you will be sitting in one of our services or activities next to another young person from your own school.

We’re committed to meeting the individual needs of all students, exactly where they're at and to challenge them to pursue God with all their hearts.

Play Games or Chill out before Services
We offer a unique activity experience before the services, where you can spend time:

In our game room, playing free arcades and PlayStation 2 games
Shooting hoops outside
Just chilling out and listening to music in our air-conditioned youth auditorium
Enjoy Elevating Services
Once the service starts, you can enjoy:

Youth-led music that honors God. A message to Elevate you into the life that God wants you to experience. Dress is always casual but tasteful! Participate in Really Fun Activities. We do lots of activities during the year, including:

  • Great Adventure
  • Monthly game nights
  • Album-release parties for our local Christian rap artists
  • Concerts
  • Conferences

Slam Jam, our summer annual youth conference, where we host other youth groups from the East Coast for a day of fun, food, hanging out, and God. If you are the hands-on type, you can serve in one of our teams, such as:

  • Sound team
  • Computer team
  • Band
  • Stage crew
  • Ushers team
  • We’re Here for You

If you are going through some tough times in your life, we are here to be a listening ear.

Elevate is about making the choice to turn away from the destructive forces of selfishness, immorality, alcohol, drugs, prejudice, and so many other things that steal away our future.

But more than that, it's turning our hearts toward God and His Son, Jesus Christ, and allowing God’s Word to guide us in each step of the amazing destiny He has for us all.

If you or someone you know would like to check out the “Elevate” Youth Ministry, contact us today.


We are located at 100 Wilton Boulevard in New Castle, Delaware, directly across from Wal-Mart. We hold our services in our youth center located in the GDC. That’s the big building on your right as you enter the parking lot.

For Parents

Our Youth Pastor, Gif Wilson, and staff have years of experience in working with young people. Pastor Gif is celebrating 21 years of service to teens and families. Many of his adult staff members have served with him for more than 5 years, and they all love youth. We also have young people ages 18 and older who help in many areas of ministry. We are very caring, but also protective, as we serve your young people. We are committed to supporting you as parents and your families.
