What does a night at 4:12 look like?

Most nights consist of games, a short teaching on the Way of Jesus and Bible, and small groups where leaders are able to talk about life, Jesus, and pray with groups of students.

Once a month we have youth night – an experience with worship, a message, prayer, games, and fun!

What are the values of 4:12?

At 4:12 We have three major values.

First is to teach students solid theology about God, the Bible, and humanity. 

Second, is to address current cultural issues that they face in school and give them a biblical framework for how to follow Jesus when culture tells another story.

Third, is to create space for students to build community with each other and leaders. Students need a place and a group that are for them and their relationship with Jesus.

How does drop-off/pick-up work?

We meet upstairs in the 4:12 room. Parents can drop off their students anytime after 6:15pm and pick up them back up 8:30-8:45.

Feel free to come in and meet the leaders!

Who are the volunteers that are leading at 4:12?

The 4:12 leadership team is comprised of people who attend Church at the Gates and are committed to investing in the lives of students. To ensure the well-being of our students, each leader has completed an application, interview, background check, and training. They have answered questions about their testimony, family, personality, and current relationship with God, as well as any history of exposure to abuse, alcohol, or drugs. Our leaders spend time each year learning about what students encounter in school and current culture and how to teach students the way of Jesus through this.

Other then regular 4:12, are there other events?

Yes! Throughout the year we have events for high school and middle school to build community follow our 4:12 Instagram page for updates.

What role do parents play in 4:12?

At CATG we are champions of the family. We believe that parents are the primary disciplers of their children, home is the primary place to make disciples, and a biblically based home is the most important component of a healthy society. At 4:12 it is our mission to support and affirm that foundation with a team of non-parental, committed adults who will be voices of truth and encouragement working with the efforts of parents. The best thing parents can do is to connect with and invest in their student’s leaders. Invite them into your family and include them as a trusted partner in your parenting adventure.

Can my student bring friends who do not follow Jesus?

At 4:12 we welcome and are are pumped for each student that comes! At CATG we want to love those near to us but far from God. A great way to do that is fro students to bring friends to 4:12 where they can hear teaching about Jesus and experience his love through our people.
