This generation of youth have a great opportunity to make a profound impact on the world they live in today. First Free Youth is a safe place to ask tough questions, wrestle with faith, and talk about real issues youth face daily. Here, teenagers are encouraged to pursue their passions to be action-oriented disciples of Christ.
