About Emmett Youth Dynamics

In 2021, Youth Dynamics officially started reaching out to the students in Emmett, Idaho, and the surrounding areas. By connecting students with caring adults, we challenge them to step out of their comfort zone and fall in love with God and His creation. 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 have an active volunteer presence at Emmett High School and have a great connection through the homeschool network! Our goal is to support our local high school and to build authentic relationships with the high schoolers. The youth outreach 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. We are always seeking out volunteers that feel passionate about high school ministry in Emmett, if that’s you; we would love for you to reach out by email.

Middle School Ministry:

We also have an active volunteer presence at Emmett Middle School and the homeschool network! Our goal is to support our local middle school and to build authentic relationships with the middle schoolers. The youth outreach 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. We are always seeking out volunteers that feel passionate about middle school ministry in Emmett, if that’s you; we would love for you to reach out to us by email.

Adventure Ministry

At the heart of Youth Dynamics Adventures is the desire to encourage youth to discover life in Christ by using adventure and creation as a means to inspire growth and transformation. We are excited about our relationship with the Youth Dynamics Adventures ministry based in Horseshoe Bend, only 30 minutes away. It offers many opportunities like whitewater rafting, rock climbing, and other exciting activities!

Leadership Development

Youth Dynamics offers several leadership opportunities. For youth ages 16-19, our Life and Leadership Training might be the perfect fit for you. For college-age students, becoming Summer Staff or an Intern would be a great option. The goal is that all will experience discipleship, adventure, challenge, and leadership.
