How we do it
The Teens church has four (4) mentoring, coaching, games and activity groups led by their teachers shared among those groups. There is yet another two groups for boys and girls; here all the male teachers and female teachers join the boys and girls groups respectively especially during such discussions as border on their sexuality.
Our Meeting Venue and Time:
The Chapel’s Multipurpose Hall host the teens on Sundays as scheduled below.
- Sundays School - 9am - 10am
- Sunday Fellowship - 10am-12noon

The teens’ weekend holds during the long vacation (between July and September) yearly.
There are voluntary and dedicated teachers out of the membership of the Chapel who prepare and monitor the execution of the programmes under the coordination of an Elder and supervision of a Pastor from the team of Pastors of the Chapel. A host of resource persons are also engaged from within and outside the Chapel as the need arises. These teachers are re-trained from time to time to match the dynamism of the teen’s department.
