The Branch Youth Ministry (6th-12th grade) exists to to teach students how to love God, love people, and make disciples. We do this by sharing a meal, studying God's Word, engaging in worship, and praying with peers and shepherds. We meet every Sunday from 12:15pm-2:30pm in the Live for More Center at Wells Branch Community Church. Come and experience authentic community where you can be known and loved!
Please email our youth pastor, Mohammad Ali, at mo@wellsbranchchurch.
