What is Illumin8?

The name Illumin8 feeds off of the command of Jesus in Matthew 5:14-16 “Ye are the light of the world” verse 16 tells us to “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven." We want our Savior to be glorified in everything that we do. We use the number 8 in our name because we have developed 8 ways to better let our light shine;
1. In our attitude
2. In our actions
3. In our faith
4. In our forgiveness
5. In our love
6. In our obedience
7. In our witness
8. In our words
Here at Kerwin Baptist Church we have 4 main goals for our youth ministry
1. Equip young men and women to develop a deeper relationship with Christ.
2. Enter into lifelong, healthy relationships with other Christian young people.
3. Enlist to serve our Savior in any opportunities that He presents.
4. Evangelize a lost world with the gospel.

Bible Study

Our JR. and Sr. High teens meet each Sunday morning at 10am. We use curriculum geared for what teens face daily in light of the Word of God.

Teen Service

We have a special service every Wednesday night. This is a time for teens to hear preaching, sing, and play games and build relationships with each other.


We believe service should be the heart of the youth ministry. We serve at our local rescue missions, work on a bus route, and go door to door visiting.

and Activities

The easiest way to get involved in the youth ministry is by coming to our activities. We have activities monthly. These range from youth meetings, paintball, lazar tag, theme parks and allnighters. We also go to youth conferences in the summer and a ski trip during the winter.
