Journey Youth Ministry of Clinton United Methodist Church is a youth program that is open to all students, grades 6-12. Through an array of programs, events and dedicated Youth Advisors, we seek to walk alongside our youth as they journey through middle and high school. We believe in the love of Jesus Christ and seek to share that with each and every student that we encounter. Our goal is to show students that they are welcome, accepted, loved and encouraged here. JYM embraces all students regardless of their church background, life experiences or current circumstances.
