Youth Ministry

Craig & Leah Carson

Youth Pastors

Hi, there!  We are Craig and Leah Carson.We became youth pastors in the fall of 2015. We had been serving in the church for many years in other ministries such as kids church, praise and worship team, coffee bar ministry, helpers in youth ministry, and the Sozo (healing prayer) ministry when God called us to be on staff as youth pastors. We had experience as youth pastors in the early years of marriage before we had any children, and now many years later we have two teenage boys! What better time to enter youth ministry, right?

As youth pastors we have a strong desire to lead our youth into a deeper trusting and loving relationship with God the father and Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit. Learning to pray, worship the Lord, evangelize others and operate in their giftings are all the aspects of living the Christian life that we hope to teach by modeling it ourselves. The motto for our youth group is “Love God, Love People, for Life.” We realize that our relationship with God the father needs to be healthy in order to know how to love the world as Christ does. Our desire is to partner with our church body at DCC to show the love of Jesus in our community.


Youth Group is 6th – 12th grade

Two services each week:

  • Wednesday at 7:00 pm in the youth room – a more casual evening including games and a short message.
  • Sunday morning at 10:00 am in the youth room – worship time, our series message and time for interaction.
