In the age of Wikipedia, smart phones, and 24 hour news, we don’t need more information, we need less. Jesus once encountered a man, who, like us, knew too much. And his message was simple; there is one rule, one idea, one cause that makes sense of it all: love the Lord your God with all your HEART + SOUL + MIND + STRENGTH. This is the whole story. Here at eStreet Youth, our vision is to remember this one thing in all we do and to raise up students who love God with everything they’ve got. We’ve written this statement on our walls; we’re writing it into our programs; we want it in our hearts. Join us!
Our ministry programs and events match our values and are offered year round. Each week we have Sunday School and youth group. Monthly we have missions and small groups. Annually we take various retreats, mission trips, attend camps, and lead confirmation class.

Appalachian Service Project exists for one simple purpose: to make homes in central Appalachia safer, warmer and dryer. To help do that eStreet Youth is sending 28 high schoolers and leaders to join with over 14,000 others this summer. The work is hard, meaningful and life changing. The experience and service is rich, thoughtful and smart. The bonds made with home owners and fellow participants will not leave you the same.

Wilderness Trail is a backpacking ministry that has been around for nearly 30 years. The trip is simple, it starts with a retreat on their property, the a small group hike for 5 days and 4 nights on the Appalachian Trail, and then one more small retreat day back at the property before coming home. I (Rush Beam) am a board member and call this trip my favorite week of the year in student ministry. I have never seen students change and grow more during a week than on this trip. All students who have completed 7th grade may sign up.
