Generation Unleashed is a youth ministry for ages 12 to 18. We currently have 4 campuses that meet weekly on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm (Rocky Butte Campus, 217 Campus, Mill Plain Campus and Downtown Portland) for Junior High and High School students. This night is a time set aside for fellowship and amazing worship from our GU band as well as challenging words from our youth pastors here at City Bible Church. Our heart is to draw youth into the presence of God and to show them how to develop and strengthen their personal relationship with God.
The Junior High Ministry of Generation Unleashed reaches kids from grades 6 – 8 or ages 12 – 14. One of the major aspects of the Jr. High Ministry is the weekend tracks. These take place at our 9:30 AM, 11:15 AM and 5:30 PM Sunday services following worship. This is a time used to teach basic biblical principles while making it applicable to their lives and easy to understand. Another key aspect includes our Junior High connect groups, which meet during the Sunday services as well as outside our weekly GU services.
Every Wednesday night High School students along with Junior High gather together for a special service just for them. We begin the night with serving food on each campus at 6:30pm followed by our GU service which begins at 7:00 pm. This service includes worship, a message by the campus youth pastor and a time of fellowship and fun for our students and leaders. We believe in building relationships and creating a welcoming atmosphere for everyone.
Generation Unleashed Internship is a program like no other. Because of its direct connection with City Bible Church and Portland Bible College, you will be involved in serving and being mentored by pastors and leaders from one of the Northwest’s many dynamic churches. As a GU Intern you will gain ministry experience, vision and be developed into a servant leader equipped to reach your generation. The program is designed for you to be able to attend Portland Bible College and also be part of GUI. In addition to the exposure and experience in CBC’s Generation Unleashed youth ministry, you will also receive practical internship training service in CBC worship, creative arts, pastoral, missions, audio and video, admin or Children’s ministry.

+ CSU CAMPUS CLUBS
As an Intern, you’ll have the opportunity every week to witness to hundreds of unsaved high school students. Our interns lead weekly outreach clubs and minister to hundreds of students by weekly attending an on campus lunch, bringing an endless supply pizza, and showing love to each student they come in contact with.
+ CITY CHRISTIAN CHAPEL
Our amazing church also has the honor of ministering to high school students through our Private Christian High School. Our Interns play a huge part in this weekly chapel as the main preaching and emcee team. Each Intern works together each week to bring an amazing service to our City Christian High School students.
+ LEADERSHIP DISCUSSIONS
Every week interns get the opportunity to be apart of leadership discussions with some of our GU youth pastors. These interactive sessions are a powerful time of personal challenge and leadership growth.
+ GU SERVICES
Our interns are a huge part of all things Generation Unleashed. From set up and tear down and leading pre-service prayer, to the GU worship team and to praying for kids on our alter teams, the interns have a hand in every aspect of GU.
As an intern you will be stretched and grown in many different ministries. From working with the GU pastors, to assisting worship teams and campus pastors; from children’s ministry assistants, to learning new skills in audio/visual departments. By exposing you to so many areas of the church our hope is that you’ll find a new clarity for your own gifts and passions.
+ PASTORAL ENCOUNTERS
One of your favorite things will quickly become the weekly meetings with world renown pastors from both CBC and around the area. You will have the opportunity each week to hear from and talk with pastors from every area of ministry. In the past we’ve had such great mentors as Judah Smith, Chad Veach, Carl Lentz, Patrick Kiteley, Frank Damazio come and speak to us.
