Manhattan First Youth

Our Manhattan First Youth meets every Wednesday night at kicks off at 7pm. Students participate in various activities year ‘round. Summer is full of great activities for students, like Tribes, Camps, and other fun events.


Manhattan First Youth is the student ministry at Manhattan First for all 6th-12th graders. It is led by Pastor Megan Allen, along with her team of leaders. Students are encouraged to put God first in their lives, and to love those around them passionately and selflessly. As one of our students put it: “we don’t just learn about God; we experience Him.”

We have several committed leaders that play a vital role. They embrace students where they are at, and call out the God given gifts in them. They also tremendously help Pastor Megan as she follows where the Lord is leading. Manhattan First Youth would not be what it is without these adults who are so compassionate for students and have such a willing heart to serve and see God made first in their lives.

Meet the Manhattan First Youth Leaders

Pastor Megan

Hi I’m Pastor Megan! I am the youth and children’s pastor here at Manhattan First. Jesus radically changed my life through growing up at Manhattan First. My desire is that your children and youth will look back on this time of their life and be able to say the same thing.

Our Leaders:

Hinge Youth would not be the same without these leaders! Because of their dedication, The Hinge has not only grown in number but in depth. With a vast amount of life experiences, these leaders can not only relate to our students but encourage them to seek the Lord. Pastor Megan believes in not just her students but wholeheartedly believes in these leaders!

Her desire is to go and do whatever God asks her to while constantly deepening her relationship and knowledge of Him. As of now, she feels God will have her focus on youth ministry by utilizing horses. When asked about volunteering with our Manhattan First Youth, she said, “I chose to be a youth leader because while I was talking with Pastor Megan, I felt that God was prompting me to get involved.” Felicity is a young adult full of passion for the Lord and a desire to be committed to whatever He has for her life.
