Student Ministry

Join us!

The mission for the Youth Ministry at Hyde Park Community is to provide a safe, welcoming place where young people can experience God in amazing ways. Every person matters in God’s plan for this world and we hope to lead and empower the next generation of church leaders and Jesus followers. We are on a journey to love God and love others.

The Youth Ministry at Hyde Park Community seeks to partner with parents to help youth develop in all aspects of life while preparing for college and careers. Youth are given opportunities to explore their gifts and talents through worship, discipleship, and leadership while focusing on becoming life-long disciples of Jesus.

We’d love to talk with you more about the Youth Ministry and find ways for you to connect. And, by the way, our staff and adult leaders are bilingual, we speak both parent and teenager!

Contact Pastor Kate Smith at with any questions and to get connected.

Made to Make a Difference Retreat
April 6 -7

In a world where young people are told “not yet” when it comes to making a difference in their community and around the world, Hyde Park Community UMC wants young people to hear and live out a different message. We are all called as followers of Jesus, regardless of age, to care for the least, the last, and the lost. The Made to Make a Difference Retreat is a local service retreat that will focus social justice issues such as poverty, food insecurity, and inequality and explore how young people can be allies, influencers, advocates, and world changers. It will be a mix of service learning and work projects in order to make a difference in the lives of people in Cincinnati and around the world.
