Youth Religious Programs
Yokosuka Student Ministries is the youth ministry for the Chapel of Hope. Yokosuka Student Ministries is made up of QUEST the middle school group (grades 6-8) and One-Way the high school group (grades 9-12).
Both QUEST and One-Way meet mid-week on Wednesdays, which is the primary connection point for the group. In addition, there is Q2 in the Ikego Housing Area. In addition to our mid-week meetings, we have Bible studies to help our students learn and apply Biblical principles to everyday life and to grow and wrestle with life's questions in a safe community of their peers.
QUEST and One-Way also have a number of special events throughout the year. Special events include trips to amusement parks, service projects, 5th quarter events, worship nights, the Amazing Race- Yokosuka, and events with other youth groups within the Kanto Plain. The events provide opportunities for students to have a great time, make friends, and grow in their relationship with God.
We have a number of retreats for both the middle school and high school groups. Retreats are a great opportunity for our students to get out of Yokosuka and to focus on their relationship with God without the distractions of life.
The bottom line- Yokosuka Student Ministries is a great place to get involved.
Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a big event in the Summertime for the Chapel of Hope. VBS is for children starting kindergarten through 5th grade.
