Welcome to the bright lights of youth ministry. Whether you’re a teenager looking for a community of fellowship and support, a parent seeking a nurturing environment for your young person or someone looking for a way to reach others through Christ, welcome. You are invited to explore All Saints’ Youth Ministries and encouraged to join us.
All Saints’ Youth Ministries program is also known as The C.A.S.T. (Community of All Saints’ Teens). This community is an umbrella organization for all facets of the youth ministries program including service, education and fellowship. The C.A.S.T. is open to 7th – 12th graders.
All Saints’ is committed to being a loving and encouraging presence in the lives of the teenagers of the Parish as we help them to navigate the challenges of adolescence.
We want our young people to have a healthy, functioning, unified, and nurturing peer community (to have FUN).

Acolytes – The life of an acolyte is one of service. Service to All Saints’. Service to the community. Service to God. 7th through 12th graders have the unique and exciting opportunity to participate all year long in this wonderful ministry. Acolytes are divided into teams and assist during church services. Volunteers are also needed as coordinators for each team. This ministry is an opportunity to learn about the Anglican tradition, meet new friends and have fun. For more information about how to get involved as an acolyte, click here to contact Karlyn Johnson Brown, Director of Youth and Family Ministries.
Navajoland Mission Trip – Upon completing their 8th grade year, teens are invited to go to Navajoland. The CAST Mission Trip in Navajoland combines all the elements of youth group: prayer, service, outreach, peer support, teambuilding, worship, and teaching.
Each summer teens and leaders travel to St. Christopher’s Mission in Utah to spend time on the Navajo reservation. Through Vacation Bible School, work projects, worship, hiking and more, we grow in ways we never imagined. The work can be simple yet meaningful and the relationships the CAST has with the community are strong and growing. If you’re looking for a life-changing experience with a group of teenagers – this is it!
This mission partnership, created by the teens, for the teens, is entirely supported by CAST fundraisers and student tuition. This experience has empowered participants, equipped them for adulthood and helped them define and celebrate their spiritual gifts – not to mention the help and love for the Navajo community. These nine days are truly transformational. Just ask the teens!
