Mission and Ministries


Mission and Ministries

Vision for youth ministry. 
Methods that work.

Youth ministry and Christian education face significant challenges. We struggle to help youth retain faith through their twenties. At Wheatstone, we think the source of those challenges is simple and deep: youth lack transitions into Christian adulthood. Rather than inviting youth into the riches of Christian maturity, Christians adopt society's stories about how adulthood works. 

We're here to help. Wheatstone offers a hopeful, informed, and practical vision for youth ministry. We empower churches and Christian schools to invite their youth into Christian adulthood. We're a young, growing nonprofit that's out to spark church-led, youth-focused renewal through winsome Christian maturity.
