5th grade - 12th grade welcome!
Hello. I am Connor Durochia, the youth leader here at Community Alliance Church. I have lived in Hinesburg my whole life and am currently back subbing in the school system and living life alongside many families and youth in this community! After finishing school at Nyack in New York, God has called me back to my hometown to help bring His healing, freedom and unity! You can often catch me at the local bakery, walking outside or cooking in my kitchen. I love good coffee and food and spending quality time with people.
We have a family-oriented, highly relational youth group here at Community Alliance Church. We typically gather together on Friday nights at either Connor's house or the church and do something larger once every other month. We stay very involved in what the larger church is doing as well, including Sunday worship services, helping in Children's Ministry, serving at the Live Nativity and more!
We encourage youth and leaders to get together throughout the months and build strong relationships--including working out together, going to sports games, eating meals, taking walks, practicing driving, and just being available to talk when needed. It feels a lot like a larger family than a class. No youth should be alone in this difficult season of life.
Mission: We seek the restoration of brokenness within ourselves, one another and our families, to grow in our identity in Christ and live for Him.
Vision: We desire for all students to know the transformational power of Jesus Christ (John 14:6) to: grow in their identity in Him (Gal 2:20); worship Him with their lives (Romans 12:1-2); make disciples of Him as they are discipled (John 15:16); love one another and serve His church (John 13:35); and advance His Kingdom through love (Matthew 28:18-20).
