As the head of a rapidly growing church body, Robb Thompson addresses a diverse set of needs among his congregation, particularly issues affecting young people.

This ministry includes programs such as bonding over board games, musical performances by young people during Children’s Church Praise, theater productions, and puppet shows. In addition, Robb Thompson has created Character Camp to assist children in learning to put God first in their lives. Robb Thompson also believes in the necessity of children participating in the ministries themselves, and he has instituted groups such as Dance, Choir, Helps Ministry, and Prayer Team. For teenagers, Robb Thompson has developed the YMAD program, which was founded according to the five topics of Spiritual Enhancement, Character Building, Relational Ethics, Training in Human Behavior, and Personal Development. Finally, Robb Thompson introduced the School of Performance as a venue for young people to develop artistic skills as part of ministry outreach activities.
