Teen Programs

Our Focus

Teen Programs is for middle and high school students, providing quality development for a better tomorrow. These programs lead participants on a path toward transformed thinking for a life of transformed legacy.

Our motto: “We are of a different spirit who lead our friends, impact our homes, transform our habits and influence our hoods through Jesus Christ.”

All our programs center students on Christ as they develop into L.E.A.D.(ers) in areas of interest.

  • L – Life Skills and Leadership
  • E – Entrepreneurial
  • A – Arts
  • D – Discipleship

Teen Leadership Team

At the start of September, the Teen Leadership Team formed to give leadership to shaping the Teen Programs at Hospitality House. Led by director of teen programs, Annette Bittner, the team meets weekly to pray, plan and prepare for intentional programs for teens 6th-12th grades.

Our goal is to introduce a teen culture where everything is centered on Christ, our core focus and core values. We are passionate about transforming thinking that leads to transformed legacy. Every one of our staff and teens are called to bear much fruit – fruit that lasts (John 15).

Our motto is: “We are of a different spirit who lead our friends, impact our homes, transform our habits and influence our hoods through Jesus Christ.”

Our programs begin with our Kick Off Event on Monday, October 10, 2022. We are working hard to prepare for the launch of additional teen programs for students 6th-12th grade in 2022-2023.
