Revolution Youth is the youth ministry of Rock Family Church of Colorado Springs (www.rockfamilychurch.com) and is designed for today’s 6th-12th grade students. Every Revolution Youth service is designed to meet the needs of today’s teenager. Regardless of their past or current situation, whether or not they feel hurt, depressed, frustrated, or confused, they can find love, acceptance, help, hope, forgiveness, guidance, and encouragement. As they continue to return, they will continue to know who God is, His plan for their lives and will receive the truth and love they need. We are "Reaching a Generation Starting a Revolution."

INCOMING 6TH GRADERS

For some incoming 6th graders, entering into youth ministry can be intimidating while others can hardly wait. Our leadership team is very aware of the feelings your child may have. In order to ease the transition, as the school year is coming to a close the leadership team members will make regular visits to the 4th-5th grade class to answer questions and get to know your 5th grader. We will also make sure your child has the opportunity to meet other students.

We will also invite the 5th grade students to join jvRev prior to graduation .

Parents, as always you are welcomed to attend with your child or observe the service they attend. You know your child best, so please let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you in teaching your child.
