College & Young Professionals

Young Adults - College & Young Professionals

The First Norfolk college/young professionals ministry exists to glorify God by creating authentic community and a space for young adults to come deepen their walk with the Lord. The ministry provides social outreach to men and women ages 18 to 30 while promoting spiritual structure to empower our lives as disciples of Jesus. We believe that life in Christ is the most fulfilling, and we invite you to experience the fullness of God's grace with us!


Young Adult Gatherings on Sundays

We have a Sunday morning gathering for all young adults at both locations. The Volvo Young Adult Gathering meets on the 3rd floor at 9:30am. The Kempsville Young Adult Gathering meets at 11 am in Room 315.


We believe that the best way to grow in your faith and in service is to be a part of a LIFEgroup. They are small, regular gatherings of people in a similar stage of life. Groups provide community, biblical teaching, and opportunities for service. We offer both on and off-campus groups. Visit Guest Services to find out about groups, or check our online listing here to find a LIFEgroup for Young Adults.
