Activate Youth

Youth Pastors Josh & Rhonda Powell

What is Activate

Activate is the vision and design for the Student Ministry at Crosby Church. Our purpose is to help students and their families connect to their creator God, to Activate His Holy Spirit in their lives through Jesus, and to Activate His love towards others. We are not the ‘youth group’ you’re used to. WE ARE A YOUTH FAMILY. Connected. Focused. United.

Our Mission

Activate is a ministry dedicated to engaging students into a deep connection with the family of Christ through relevant, fun, creative methods to open their eyes and hearts to God’s love. Equipping students to know God’s Word, teaching ways to turn God up in their lives through worship, prayer, and HIS Word. Empowering students to take ownership of their generation and sending them out into the world to turn God up in people’s lives. Sharing the gospel throughout the world and leading the way to the future by the example of Christ.

Upcoming Events

Coming This Summer


Our youth camp holds a special place in so many of our hearts.  We travel to Dale, Indiana every year to a camp our church co-owns with several other churches in the Midwest.  God has been transforming and changing lives at this camp for over 65 years.  Our own senor pastor, children's pastor and youth pastors have all been called into ministry at this very camp.  We have seen countless lives changed by the power and the presence of Jesus through the years and thousands would tell you that Bethel Youth Conference Center is one of their favorite places on earth.  We take charter buses up there and back and the teens are always safe and have a blast.  All camp workers have background checks.  You can register here on line and the cost is $350.  If you have any concerns or questions about camp email Rhonda Powell at  

Fundraiser For Camp

If a student needs help going to camp, we are currently selling Nothing Bundt cake vouchers.  The forms can be picked up at the youth check in desk in the Fusion center.  We will be selling until June 2nd.
