- Help local churches to facilitate, support and empower youth to grow in faith, in their relationship to Jesus Christ and in leadership.
- Foster relationships and connect youth ministries and churches to one another, the districts and the Conference.
- Provide large fellowship activities that reach out and unite youth inside and outside of the church.

Youth Leader Information
Some things youth leaders need to know…
Any member of a participating youth group may have an image used in future publications, multimedia presentations, on the Alexandria/Arlington Bi-District or Virginia Annual Conference website, including social networking sites. Use of these images would be for the express purpose of communicating and sharing information about the Bi-District Youth.
Each group is responsible for their own participants permission slips, medical forms and emergency contacts for participants.
Occasionally, our students take time to write about their experiences at our Bi-District events. You can read their thoughts on the Youth Blog.
