Explore the ministry opportunities for your students at Perth Bible Church

At Perth Bible Church our youth experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.

Alive Youth Ministry exists to reach teenagers with God's Word, pair them with spiritually mature christians to experience discipleship, and to live life with other believers to experience community.

MARCS stands for the 5 marks of a true disciple of Jesus Christ. MARCS Groups are small groups designed for teens to experience God's Word, learn their need for discipleship, and be in an environment where they can experience community. We get together to eat and fellowship around each other and God’s Word. *To get plugged in, contact Jackson.
