FINE ARTS

 


DISCOVER / / / DEVELOP / / / DEPLOY

In September each year, over 65 thousand students begin preparing their entries for the district and National Fine Arts Festivals. Fine Arts is a discipleship tool of the Assemblies of God Youth Ministries designed to help students discover, develop, and deploy their ministry gifts. Students may enter as many of these seven main categories as they wish: Art, Communication, Dance, Drama, Instrumental, Vocal, and Writing.

Although competitive elements are present, providing a competition venue is not the primary mission of Fine Arts Festival.

The Fine Arts Ministry is designed to help students discover and develop their gifts with the intention and hope that they will deploy them in their churches, schools, and communities. However, the Fine Arts process is not about the presentation - it's about discipleship. It’s about the process of becoming a fully-devoted follower of Jesus.

Discipleship takes time, effort, energy, sacrifice, and intentionality. Take the time. Put forth the effort. Expend the energy. Make sacrifices. Be intentional about the journey of discipleship through the Fine Arts process. Each of us has been created to do good things. Glorifying God with our ministry gifts is good! And when we do good for everyone to see, people will praise God as a result (Matthew 5:16).

Through Fine Arts Festival, students are given the opportunity to have their skills evaluated by qualified leaders who encourage excellence, offer ideas for improvement and inspire students to use their gifts in the local church, their community and around the world in ministry or the marketplace. Scores are not as important as lessons learned, experience gained and skills developed.

FAQ's for Parents

Located on the right, you will find answers to the FAQ's we receive from parents. If you find we did not answer your question, please feel free to contact us!

It is my student's first time attending Northview Youth. How will they know where to go/what to do?

Anywhere from 6:00 - 6:30 PM, students may enter Door 6 at the rear of our facility. Upon entering, your student will be greeted by our youth leaders at the check-in location. Each student who attends our Wednesday evening service must fill out a connection card with their name, address, personal phone number and that of a parent/guardian. 

After checking in, your student will be accompanied by a youth leader or student to take a tour of the gym where they will find a variety of games, an area in the gym where they can socialize, and the youth hallway which provides a quieter setting if they want to do homework.

All students in grades 6-12 are together for one combined service., which will conclude at 7:45 PM. Students are welcome to stay after and hang out, but will be asked to leave by 9:00 PM.

How do I keep up with all that is happening with Northview Youth?

The best way to know what’s happening with Northview Youth is by following us on InstagramFacebook and/or YouTube. We’re constantly posting updates about what is happening, what is coming up and what we love the most: sharing what God is doing in the lives of our students!

How can I be involved with Northview Youth?

We truly appreciate the dedication and heart behind every one of our volunteers! We offer a variety of areas in which you can serve: student check-in, snack area, small groups, prayer team, chaperone for youth trips, tech team, and more.

To get started, we ask that each potential volunteer connect with a youth leader for a Volunteer Form.  Upon completion of the form, for confidentiality purposes, seal it in the envelope provided and return it to the church receptionist Monday through Thursday or drop it in the mail.  Once your application has been received and the background check has been processed, the youth pastor will contact you for a meeting.

Can I come with my student?

If you would like to check out a Northview Youth service in person with your student, stop by our student check-in desk any Wednesday night and one of our youth leaders will be happy to assist you.

You can view past messages posted on Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube .

Are students allowed to leave the building?

For their safety, once a student checks in at Northview Youth, we ask that they remain in the venue until the official dismissal from service is given. Once service is over, students are welcome to leave and meet their parents/guardians at your designated meeting place.

When are service times?

Students in grades 6-12 participate in a service filled with fun, worship, a message from the Word and small groups, all of which focus on Jesus!  Service begins at 6:30 PM and ends at 7:45 PM.  All students are welcome to come when doors open at 6:00 PM, and the gym and Event Center will remain open until 9:00 PM, so students can spend time with their friends, peers and youth leaders.

What time do special event services begin?

We have a number of special events throughout the year, including School Kick-Off, special guest speakers, a Christmas Party, and a Summer Kick-off.

The service time for special services runs from 6:30 to 7:45 PM on specific Wednesdays which will be announced in advance.

Do you have Northview Youth during the summer?

YES!  We have a service for students entering grades 6-12 in the fall.  We meet every Wednesday night. from 6:30 - 7:45 PM.  They come to enjoy time with their friends and youth "fam".  Students are encouraged to come at 6:00 PM (before the service)  and stay until 9:00 PM (after the service), so they will have time to connect and build relationships with their peers and youth leaders.

We are always sorry to see students leave Northview Youth when they graduate.  That's why we welcome our seniors to attend throughout the summer after graduation, but to also begin attending and get plugged into Summer Chi Alpha.  Details on how seniors can become involved in Summer Chi Alpha can be found here.
