Equipping Youth To Follow & Grow With Jesus!

Who We Are

The C.H.O.S.E.N. Generation Youth Ministry of Friendship-West is a part of "A Game Changing Christian Movement connecting young people to Jesus Christ; equipping them to fight for justice; and empowering them to create the beloved community."  We exist to help students (6th – 12th grade) discover the plans and purposes God has for their lives in an environment specifically designed for them.

"But you are a CHOSEN generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light."
1 Peter 2:9
