Helping students own their relationship with Jesus and develop spiritual rhythms to last a lifetime
We are passionate about providing incredible happenings for our Jr High and High School students! You’ll find lots of laughter, high energy activities, relevant Biblical teaching and time spent in leadership. Our hope is that through Good Shepherd, our Youth would come to know Jesus as their savior.

We seek to provide our students with the education to create a firm foundation of faith. As Lutherans, we recognize the affirmation of baptism through Confirmation. For many students, this is the first time they make their faith their own and truly consider what a relationship with Christ means. To prepare for this milestone, we lean the basics of the Lutheran faith through the Sparkhouse CoLABorate Curriculum.
