We strive to make our Youth House a place where all are welcomed into the community of Jesus Christ; a place where you are loved and accepted for who you are, free to be your true self, and to find people who will stand beside you as we all struggle to serve God.
PHPC has an active and vibrant youth group, and we would love to have you join us! Are you looking for leadership experiences? Join our youth council! Needing decompression time? Join us at Wednesday Nights in the house- where we eat dinner together, watch a movie, and work on homework (sometimes). Hungry for a deeper spirituality? Join us Sunday mornings at 9:30 am for Sunday school! Eager to explore the world and make more friends? Make sure to sign up for some of our summer trips! There is room for everyone, so know that you are welcome here!
Confirmation is a season of communal faith development and exploration, designed to help us articulate what it is that we believe. At Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church, we invite all rising 9th graders to join together in the confirmation experience, as we wrestle with questions such as “Who is God?,” “What does it mean to be a Presbyterian?,” and “What is grace?” Confirmation will begin September 17 and will run through mid-December. Youth will be ordained prior to the Christmas holiday. Confirmation is a beautiful milestone in the faith community, and we hope to see all rising 9th graders there!
Check back in August for Confirmation sign ups!
We have many opportunities for our Youth Ministry to get involved in our music ministry! Please see our Music page for details.
Youth summer trips
In order to save your space on a trip, you must first either put down a deposit, or pay your fee in full. The SH ASP Mission trip deposit is due February 18th. All other deposits are due March 18th. You will have up to one month before the trip to pay your fee in full.
All deposits are binding. In other words, your space is loosely saved by signing up.
Your space is officially saved once you pay a deposit. Once you have paid a deposit, you are responsible for the cost of the trip in full, regardless of whether you attend or not. This protects the church, which also pays money for every student on every trip.
Scholarships are available! If you need a trip scholarship, e-mail Sarah at with the amount you need and why you want to go on that trip.
