Welcome to Covenant’s Youth Ministry! Please complete the online registration form at the link below so that we may provide the best possible care for your child. The information will be kept confidential. For questions, please contact Sally Jackson in the Education Wing office.
Youth at Covenant is organized by grades: Base (6th & 7th Grades), Quest (8th Grade), and PEAK (9th-12th Grades).
On Sunday mornings, classes meet for Sunday School to learn about the intersection of scripture, faith, and life using engaging and relevant curriculum. Sunday evenings, all grades gather for a community meal, worship, then breakout sessions where we play, serve together, and learn how our faith informs our way of being in the world.
Wednesday nights, youth are invited to dine together at Covenant’s Open Table fellowship dinner. From there, Middle School Youth continue fellowship in the Rec Wing at Open Gym Night, while High School Youth explore Christian themes in popular movies in the Education Wing during Film + Theology.
Throughout the year youth are invited to participate in retreats, service opportunities, special events, and summer mission trips in the state, country, and across the globe.
None of this would be possible without the help of volunteer chaperones, mentors, and adult advisors! Parents are strongly encouraged to volunteer during weekly programming, Sunday School, and on trips. If you feel called to serve or would like information, please reach out to Levi or Perrin, our directors.
Perrin Tribble is the Middle School Youth Ministries Director. Perrin is familiar to Covenant having served as a summer intern in 2011, interim Director of High School Ministries during the summer of 2012 and as the Summer Intern for Christian Education and Discipleship in 2013.
Perrin, a graduate of Presbyterian College in Clinton, SC is currently serving as the Director of Children, Youth, and Christian Education at Second Presbyterian Church, Charleston, SC and as the Middle School Basketball and Volleyball Coach at Charleston Day School. On working with Covenant’s youth again, Perrin says, “I am so thankful and excited for the opportunity to return to Covenant in this capacity. I look forward to serving and growing alongside the middle school youth and their families within this dynamic church and surrounding community.”
Levi is well versed in the customs of the Presbyterian Church, having served as youth elder on the session at Black Mountain Presbyterian. He also held a leadership position with the Presbyterian Youth Council, a role in which he created small group curriculum and led engagement and worship from the stage for 2,000 youth conference attendees. As a resident advisor at Presbyterian College, Levi responded to the needs of students on his hall and organized activities to build community.
