Ways to Serve

youth small group leader

Youth Small Group Leaders invest in the youth of Tuckston. They are disciple-makers helping youth love God and love others! 

A Small Group Leader spends up to 8 hours a week investing into his/her small group. Leaders help with our main youth service called The Harbor and also connect with their small groups throughout the week. 

If you are interested in serving in this way please email Josh Garner at

Summer Internship

"I want to know more about God, how to follow him, and how to serve him." 

If that describes you then you may be interested in our internship.

The Tuckston Youth Ministry Internship is a paid, 10 week summer internship that runs from May 29 – August 4th. The purpose of the internship is to allow young adults the chance to grow as a disciple and leader while ministering to the youth of Athens. Interns commit to 25 hours/ week.
