Youth Ministry

Our youth group is a crazy, awesome group of students from sixth to twelth grade. We believe that God desires for us to live in community for His glory. We strive to do this through strong relationships that direct people to God. As a youth program our core values are: (a) partnership, (b) empowerment, (c) worship, (d) discipleship, and (e) mission.

On Sunday mornings, in a program called The Vine, the students gather for teaching & growth.

  • The Vine: Sundays at 9:30 AM. High Schoolers meet at the Log Cabin. Middle Schoolers in the Fireside Room.

Weekly youth group sessions held during the week begin with worship and give the students time to learn and connect. They then meet with their D-groups -- small discipleship groups made up of other youth of the same age and gender -- to grow, hang out, and walk life together. Each group has a small group leader that serves as a minister to the students in their group and a resource for their parents.

  • High School Youth Group (9th through 12th grade): 6:30 to 8:30 PM Wednesdays in the Log Cabin.
  • Middle School Youth Group (6th through 8th grade): 6:30 to 8:30 PM Fridays starting off in the Main Sanctuary. Pick up at the Log Cabin.
  • Combined Youth Group for the summer at the Main Sanctuary. See the youth calendar for dates.

Overnight Retreats and Camps offered throughout the year allow youth the chance to study and experience Jesus while they learn about each other and themselves. Contact Treacy Walsh at treacy.walsh@peninsulabible.org for more information about upcoming Youth Retreats and Camps.  Registration Forms are also available at the Welcome Desk or at this link.

Meet our Youth Pastor: Treacy Walsh

Hey! My name is Treacy Walsh and I'm so excited to meet you!!

My youth group played a huge role in my spiritual development, which is a big reason why I have a heart for students. I've served as a youth pastor in Spokane and Battle Ground Washington. God has given me a passion to connect young people to Jesus and equip them to be disciples who make disciples and change the world around them. My wife, Megan and I can't wait to meet everyone and get to know you! See you at youth group!

Meet our Middle School Director: David Kinjorski

David & Megan

What's Up?!

I'm David Kinjorski, I am married to the wonderful Megan Kinjorski, and it is crazy that I get to be the Middle School director at this amazing church! My dad was in the army through my whole childhood and teen years so I moved every couple of years and never got to be a part of a steady youth group experience. But God works in mysterious ways and shaped my life to be able to be here now and walk beside you all as your friend, teacher, and brother in Christ! I've had various different ministry experiences, including being a youth pastor in a small town in New Mexico, but ultimately He has given me a heart to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ, and to build up his Church [that's YOU!]. That's what I'm here to do; I'm stoked to hang with you guys and girls at youth group and have a TON of fun! See you there!

Mission programs propel youth and their fresh faith into the world. At least one, and sometimes more, mission trips are offered. In 2012-2016, students have traveled to remote Canada to offer a vacation bible school to First Nations children.

Parents can find support and connect with other youth parents at our regular Parent Connections breakfasts held periodically thorughout the year. Check the Youth Ministry calendar for dates.

Youth Liability Waiver

Paperwork is great, right? Fortunately this liability release waiver only needs to be signed once a year! Parents, please fill out and "sign" one waiver per student so that your children can participate in PBF Youth events, camps and retreats.

Please note: we consider the "year" that the waiver is good for to coincide with the school-year; so think September-to-August. Every September we will remind everyone to get a new waiver turned in.

If you're new to PBF Youth, then just fill one out as soon as you can so we have it on file.
