Vision Statement:

The vision for our Youth is to give them a voice and to let them know they matter.  Provide young people with a place where they feel welcome, accepted, and safe. Offer the youth support in all phases of their spiritual journey.

Mission Statement:

The A.C.E youth group of Vista UMC is dedicated and passionate about giving back to the community. They would like to have a voice in their spiritual journey and trust that the love, kindness, respect, and sometime forgiveness will be returned from the community as they develop into self-reliant adults that become the leaders of tomorrow.

If your youth wishes to participate in our youth program, please print and complete the following 2015_Youth Ministry Registration Form.

The General Conference of The United Methodist Church, in April 1996, adopted a resolution aimed at reducing the risk of child sexual abuse in the church. The adopted resolution includes the following statement: Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes [a] child, welcomes me.” (Matthew 18:5).
