About Horseshoe Bend Youth Dynamics

Youth Dynamics in Horseshoe Bend, Idaho is a relational adventure youth ministry dedicated to getting teens outside and into relationships with others and Jesus. Youth Dynamics involves itself with the Horseshoe Bend community by connecting students with caring adults. We challenge them to get outside and into relationships with others and Jesus. In addition, we offer leadership opportunities and the kind of adventures youth are born to experience. Most importantly, we invite youth to know and follow Christ.

High School Ministry:

We are an active presence at Horseshoe Bend High School and have a connection with the homeschool community. Our goal is to support the local community and build authentic relationships with high-schoolers. The youth center is a safe, non-threatening space where students can receive help with homework, have meaningful, interactive fun, and hear about Jesus. We offer incredible adventure trip opportunities, weekly after-school events/programs, mentoring, discipleship, and retreats. If you are interested in becoming involved or connected with Youth Dynamics, reach out by email.

Middle School Ministry:

We also have an active presence at Horseshoe Bend Middle School and in the homeschool community. Our goal is to support our local middle school and build authentic relationships with the middle schoolers. The youth center is a safe, non-threatening space where students can meet, have fun and hear about Jesus. We offer incredible adventure trip opportunities, weekly after-school events/programs, mentoring, discipleship, and retreats.

Adventure Ministry

Youth Dynamics Adventures’ is designed to challenge and encourage youth and young adults to discover life in Christ using adventure and creation to inspire growth and transformation. We invite you to step out into the beautiful spaces that make up your backyard. Challenge gravity while enjoying the panoramic views offered through rock climbing. Explore the twists and turns of the powerful rivers. Cheer through the wild parts and take advantage of the water’s quiet moments to listen and join in important and deep conversation. No matter what level of adventure you choose, your trip becomes a pivotal launch toward transformation. Adventure forges the backbone of your trip, but quiet, uninterrupted conversation and time to think will bring deep value to your guided activity. If that’s you, we would love for you to reach out to us by email.

Youth Dynamics offers several leadership opportunities.

  • Youth,16-19, – Life and Leadership Training.
  • College-age, Summer Staff, or an Intern is a great opportunity.
