Our Youth Staff

On Staff with 4C’s Youth is Claire Teague and Brian Kainz.

The two of them share a passion and  desire to point young people towards Christ.

(and having fun along the way)

Claire Teague

Claire is fueled by the Holy Spirit and local coffee, and is passionate about Student Ministry. She feels driven to see students navigate their challenging teen years in a community where they feel safe, known, and loved. She loves helping students to own their faith for themselves, and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. After working in youth ministry for over six years, Claire has become especially passionate about preaching the Word of God and empowering students to understand it for themselves. In her free time, you can find her playing in the mountains, cooking, and using her truck camper.

Brian Kainz

Brian is passionate about seeing students find a place to belong, and creating space for students to be real and vulnerable. Brian loves silly games, goofy jokes, and laughter, because of they way that they break down barriers with students. He believes a smile and a laugh can be the best way to open doors to conversation about Jesus. He loves being outdoors playing music, and playing disc golf. Brian loves food, sharing meals with students and helping them find joy in all things. Rock climbing, video games, music and walks with his wife and dog consume Brian’s free time. Brian has been in Youth Ministry for over 6 years.

OUR PROGRAMS

FUSION (6TH-8TH GRADE)

Fusion is our junior high ministry.

Each night is packed with crazy games, interactive surprises, a Bible based talk and small-group time.

Junior high students are led and mentored by an incredibly gifted team of adults, college students, recent graduates devoted to showing Christ’s love to students

Tuesday nights from 6:30-8:00pm during the school months in our youth space, just to the left of the lobby!! 

HIGH POINT (9TH-12TH GRADE) 

High Point is for high school!  

High Point is a time to laugh through crazy games, spend some time in worship, get led in biblical teaching and find real fellowship and community in our small groups.

Our small groups are same-gender and often same-grade groups, each led by our rockstar adult volunteers. Here students are able to get deep with Christ and with each other. 

Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30pm during the school months in the youth space, just to the left of the lobby!!

SUNDAY MORNING

At 4C’s, we believe a student has the full capacity to lean into their God-given gifts to serve the Whole Church.

For that reason, we encourage students to be involved with the life of our Church on Sunday mornings.

On any given Sunday we have students serving on the Tech team, on the Worship team, in the Nursery, and in Children’s ministry.

Many of our students also sit together during service and engage with the Worship and teaching together.

Contact Claire or Brian if you have interest in serving on Sunday mornings!

For Our Graduating Seniors:
Saying “goodbye” to our seniors every year is one of the most bittersweet pieces of working in youth ministry! We hate to see them go, but we’re so excited about what is next for them!

We want our seniors and recent Grads to know that we’re always there for them. They will always have a home at 4Cs, and  we’re still in their corner. With that commitment in mind, we’ve added a little list of resources here for them based on the new life stage they’re heading into! Topics include: how to register to vote, how to find a solid church, and how to be in God’s Word on your own.

Parents, don’t worry–we’ve got some resources for you too!

Praying for you, cheering for you, and here for you always!

Your youth pastors, Claire & Brian
