Youth Ministry


Rafting. Paint night. Resurrection. Ministry and Service Opportunities. Our Fountain City UMC youth ministry seamlessly mixes fun and faith, service and slip-n-slide, all while providing a safe space for our youth to discover what it means to follow Jesus, even when it’s tough or unpopular. Our youth ministry staff (including our hopelessly amazing interns) are dedicated to building real, lasting friendships with and between our middle and high school students. For more information on all the wacky and/or messy events our Youth Director can dream up, please contact Dale Giefing.

Resurrection is January 20-22, 2023 at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, TN! We will be staying at the Mountain Castle cabin and the cost per student will be $200 (with discounts for multiple students). Scholarships will be available! Contact Dale Giefing ( with questions. Register here. If we can get 50 students to register, the youth will be able to decide how Dale will cut or dye his hair for the trip so get them signed up!!!
