Youth Development Momentum Program

Momentum guarantees a young person that there is someone who cares about them. A child needs to know that they are not alone in dealing with the day-to-day challenges of life.

Think back on your life. Did you know how to change a tire or make plans for college? Do you remember wanting your first car or looking for a job? Simple things that seem easy to you may not be to a young person.

Momentum is every Tuesday from 6:30 pm to 8 pm during the school year. Between June and September, we will only meet on July 11th and 25th, August 8th and 22nd. Starting in October we will go back to every week.  Students will meet at the Lighthouse Community Center at 239 Main Street, Denver PA 17517.

Individual Mentoring

Through our Momentum team, a group of trained young adults, we connect with school students in the Cocalico School District. Each Tuesday night we will have small and fun lectures about various subjects, as group games, to help students connect with themselves and others.

All young adults interested in becoming a Lead Mentor must fill out the volunteer application to apply.  You then will be contacted soon after for a group interview.

If you have any questions please contact us at (717) 336-7797 or email us at

Why do we need Momentum?

Momentum is a group of students and volunteers that have a lot of passion to reach out to their fellow classmates who are hurting. Students need to be encouraged, equipped, and empowered to make a difference in their school and church. Momentum will be the source to equip and empower young people to speak out about issues that are directly affecting their lives.

What Bible verse do we use as our Mission Statement?

Ezra 5:11 We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and we are rebuilding the temple that was built many years ago…

Seven issues to focus on first
