Welcome to STF YTH!

Let us introduce ourselves.

STF YTH is a ministry at South Tampa Fellowship for middle and high school students. Our goal is to help families find and follow Jesus. That’s why we work with parents to prepare students for a lifetime of following Jesus.

Ways to get Connected

YTH Nights

Yth Nights happen every Wednesday from 7 PM to 8 PM at the Youth Room in Ballast Point Campus. These nights are all about fun games, uplifting worship, and a message based on the Bible to help students apply it to their lives. It’s a party every time, so don’t come alone – bring a friend!

YOUR STUDENT'S SAFETY

We prioritize the safety of our children and students at South Tampa Fellowship. Our team undergoes thorough screening and training, and all volunteers who work with kids and students are known members of the church who have completed a criminal background check, child abuse awareness training, and a personal safety screening. Furthermore, no adult is allowed to work alone with a minor in any setting.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can my student attend STF YTH even if my family does not attend STF?

Yes, everyone is welcome at STF Yth! One of our main goals is to work together with families as they help their teenagers discover and follow Jesus. We encourage students to worship with their family and to participate in youth group at their local church if it is an option. However, we understand that various circumstances may prevent this. Therefore, our ministry is intentionally created to be an inclusive environment for everyone!

Who is working with my teenager?

The leadership of STF Yth is made up of church staff members as well as adult volunteers from within the STF Church Family. All staff members and volunteers are required to complete a background check prior to their involvement with STF Yth. In addition to this, we train all of our leaders in various skills and competencies related to ministering to teenagers. You can find more information about the Youth Staff here.

How can parents get involved?

We love parents! Without parent and volunteer involvement, the ministry could not function, so we encourage parental involvement. In compliance with our church policies, all volunteers must complete background checks before becoming involved in a leadership role in the ministry. Please talk to the STF YTH Team about getting this or contact us at students@stfchurch.com.

Volunteer Opportunities

We are constantly seeking volunteers who can join us in supporting students as they discover and follow Jesus. There are various ways for you to contribute at STF Yth based on your schedule. Click here to complete the volunteer form and start the process of engaging with our ministry.

REPORT SUSPICIOUS OR INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR.

South Tampa Fellowship believes that, as Christians, we all have a moral and ethical responsibility to report alleged or potential abuse of children. All staff and volunteers are asked to report any ‘grooming’ behavior, policy violations, and other suspicious behavior. Upon receiving a report, a designated team will convene to review the claims, evaluate any immediate needs for medical services or law enforcement action, and consult proper legal counsel to ensure the proper next steps are taken. The team will work with all appropriate parties to develop a safety and support plan for any child or children involved and their families. To submit a report, please click here.
