A.C.C.E.N.T Youth Group

Accepting Christ’s Call Elyria Nazarene Teens

Adolescence is a time in life marked by change. So much is changing in the life of a teen that it is important for them to have a place of consistent love and acceptance by other teens and by adults. That is what we seek to provide here at ECCN. We combine biblical teaching with a safe and inviting social atmosphere where everyone can be themselves while striving to be more like Christ.


We have a variety of activities, including Retreats, Lock-Ins, Christmas Party, Concerts/Music, Work and Witness Trips, Ministries in Action, Highway Cleanup, Dinner Theater, and Summer Camps.


BLAST (Building Leaders and Sharing Talents) is an event through which talents and leadership skills of youth are developed, encouraged, and used for Jesus Christ. The process begins in a local church setting, where youth are encouraged in their special gifts and abilities, continues through district festivals, and extends to the regional event held each year at Mount Vernon Nazarene University. BLAST is more than an annual regional event; it’s a year-long emphasis on talent/leadership development at every level.
