We desire to share the Gospel of Christ with teenagers in Orange County Virginia and the surrounding area.  As we disciple them in their walk with God and establish them in our church family here at The Lake of the Woods Church, we equip them and then send them back out to their families, the local schools, and our communities to share the love of God with others. 

OUR PURPOSE | Globally

In preparing our teens to live their faith out loud as an active part of the greater church today, we also realize that they are the future of the church.  We desire to equip and prepare young people who will be bold, sold out followers of Jesus no matter what career or field they are called to.  Christian men and women who will be a living testimony and example to Jesus wherever He calls them to be.  As we see young adults moving from Orange Virginia to other cities, states and even countries we rejoice that God has allowed us to be a part of sending His message of love and grace globally to others.
