Interested in a community where you can belong before you believe…and believe before you behave? Do you desire to be taken seriously in life?

PYM is a ministry to youth in grades 6-12, and is led by Pastors Shawn McKnight & Alex Lopez, and a group of trusted, safe volunteer adult and student leaders from Parkwood Gospel Church.


Parkwood Youth Ministries exists to lead students & families to Know God, Own their Faith, and make God and their faith Known.


(the “how we get there” statement!)

We want to challenge, encourage and empower youth to live with purpose.  Our ministry will focus on 4 key elements in how we Connect, Grow, Serve and Go in our relationship with God, others and community.  Everything from our teaching and worship, to our serving and relational & social elements, will unashamedly reflect those 4 key elements.
