Abundant Grace Youth exists to build youth leaders who will impact and reach their generation for Christ. Shanghai is a difficult place for youth to be committed to God and we provide a safe place where youth can come to know Jesus for themselves and build friendships and foundations to follow Him for the rest of their lives.

Youth Sunday Gathering

This is a dynamic youth gathering designed so that high school and middle school students can be built up as leaders through serving, speaking and leading in various ways, under the guidance of the Student Ministries Pastor.

The Youth meets Sundays at The Hub from 3-4:30pm. Youth are invited to remain in the main gathering during the Sunday 6pm service where a “youth section” in the first few rows, will be reserved for them to sit and worship together.


WayPoint | Small Groups

WayPoints are youth small groups, which are gender and age specific, and happen in various homes around Pudong. WayPoints are led by trained adult volunteers, who teach youth God’s Word and encourage them to follow Jesus by applying His Word into their daily lives. Through these small groups, they are able to develop their relationship with God and one another. WayPoints are also where we develop the student leadership and the ministry teams of the youth group.

WayPoint Meetings (Note: evening, times and locations vary).
We have the following groups:

  • 6th Grade Girls
  • 7th Grade Girls
  • 8th Grade Girls
  • 9th & 10th Grade Girls
  • 11th & 12th Grade Girls
  • 6th Grade Boys
  • 7th & 8th Grade Boys
  • 9th & 10th Grade Boys
  • 11th & 12th Grade Boys

Outreach & Connect Nights

Abundant Grace Youth are encouraged to actively engage in service outside the church as well. Each WayPoint encourages students to invite their friends to a once a month outreach event called Connect. Connect is a fun environment for students to invite friends to and includes: activities, an engaging message, worship and fellowship.

Connect nights happen one Saturday night a month at 7pm.

Each small group also takes on a service project together once a semester, as they learn to tangibly express God’s love; and the high school students have a yearly outreach trip to South Africa where they work with various ongoing projects and partnerships.

Retreats & Special Events

Big events include the Fall and Spring youth retreats and Amplified—a Shanghai-wide youth worship night, where they encounter God radically and deepen in their friendships with one another.
