Our youth department, more commonly called
the C.A.S ministers to youth from twelve to eighteen, providing fellowship and
instruction through a variety of programs and activities. Pinebrook endeavors to
help our young people deal with the pressures of life and confront serious
issues and challenges from a biblical perspective. Our goal is to teach them to
understand and apply biblical principles to their daily situations and make
decisions based upon the Word of God instead of peer pressure.
Royal Rangers is a program for boys ages four through
seventeen. The program has a fourfold purpose: to reach boys with the gospel of
Jesus Christ. To instruct then in Bible doctrine, to prepare them for Christian

program strives to assist boys to develop mentally, spiritual, physical and
socially in a positive manner.

in the joy of learning what it means to be a Missionette.
