Teen programs at The Beloved affirm the sacred worth of all teens and are affirming and inclusive of all genders, races, orientations, abilities and identities. All programming for Teens at The Beloved is led by background checked staff and volunteers who have agreed to follow The Beloved Church Safe Sanctuaries Policy. Whether you're looking for a place to hang out after school to do crafts and get some help with homework, dig deep into some spiritual questions, or play a role playing game with other queer and allied teens, we've got you.

McVay Youth partnership

The McVay Youth Partnership (Youth-VOICE) offers a safe, fun place for middle and high school students. Students spend time with their friends creating art, music, drama and can receive help with their homework. Service projects and presentations by local leaders enable students to explore the community.

The McVay Youth Partnership is staffed by experienced and energetic McVay Fellows, Associates, Specialty Associates, and Interns. All fellows, associates, and interns receive training and are supported by Hamline University staff.

The program is free and open to all students in grades 5-12 who are willing to follow these basic rules:

  • Respect yourself

  • Respect others

  • Respect property

The McVay Youth Partnership is a university-church partnership funded by a generous endowment from the McVay Family Foundation. It embodies the mission and vision of Hamline University and is officed through the Wesley Center.

Programming occurs on Mondays, and Fridays from 3:30-6PM at The Beloved, and Wednesdays at First Covenant Church Saint Paul.
